Mad Hot Ballroom

When it comes to documentaries, you can't go wrong with kids or animals. Here, we've got a teary feel-good examination of 11-year-old New York City school kids who enroll in a ballroom dancing competition. The film feels free to explore the kids' lives outside of the ballroom, and finds some lovable youngsters to root for. The best parts, surprisingly, aren't on the dance floor but in the lovely portraits of assorted NYC neighborhoods and in the frank, funny prepubescent comments of the kids who live there. 105 minutes
