REVIEW: GO FOR IT
Let the music move you this fall as Lionsgate brings the inspirational dance film, Go For It!, to DVD, Digital Download and On Demand. Audience Award winner and Official Selection of the 2010 Chicago International Film Festival, this coming of age drama is written and directed by newcomer Carmen Marron, who was inspired by her own experiences as a street dancer in Chicago. The film stars Aimee Garcia (upcoming Showtime’s “Dexter” Season 6), as a young Carmen, who spends most of her time in underground clubs enthralled in her life’s passion – dance. The film also features a strong supporting cast that includes Al Bandiero (Rocky IV), Jossarra Jinaro (Collateral Damage) and Gina Rodriguez (Our Family Wedding), as well as special appearances by Somaya Reece and The Beat Freaks. Go For It! on DVD, featuring an audio commentary with the cast and crew, will be available on September 27th.
SYNOPSIS: Carmen (Garcia) lives for the underground hip-hop scene in her native Chicago. Born as a first generation Mexican-American, she finds herself faced with intense pressure to succeed in college and impress her chaotic family. When her personal life becomes too much, Carmen quits her dance team and puts her dreams of becoming a dancer on hold. But with the positive influence of a professor, she’s encouraged to audition for a formal dance school and seize an opportunity to shine.
