Thoughts on Dare to Dream
Thoughts – Dare to Dream brings us the magical story of love between an extra and a dance double on a movie set, that will see them separated by the new restrictions thrown up in German. This does show us the magic of how movies can bring people together from different worlds when it comes to the meeting process on the sets, we see how despite boundaries, love will remain strong and breaking out the strict rules will make people more creative with their expressions. The lead two performances are wonderful, with the supporting cast getting extra laughs along the way, which will make even more enjoyment to be received from the film. We might not get into the truth depths of the reality of the change in German, where the making of the movie manages to help everyone put that behind them, rather than let them get caught up in the problems coming their way.
Final Thoughts – Dare to Dream is an enjoyable story of love.
