Catch Strictly Ballroom on Blu-Ray

by Nicole on June 4, 2013


I hadn’t ever seen Strictly Ballroom and was excited to see it had been released in Blu-Ray recently! I got a chance to watch it one rainy Sunday while Jamie was at work and I had some time to myself!

Audiences can relive all the heat and passion in Miramax’s uplifting and iconic dance film, Strictly Ballroom, premiering on Blu-ray Disc this April from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. From acclaimed director Baz Luhrmann (upcoming The Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge!) comes the tale of a maverick dancer who chooses to risk it all by incorporating a new dance partner into a very unusual routine. Nominated for the 1994 Golden Globe® for Best Motion Picture (Comedy/Musical), Strictly Ballroom features a talented indie cast including Paul Mercurio (Exit To Eden), Tara Morice (TV’s “Dance Academy”) and Bill Hunter (Finding Nemo). The Strictly Ballroom Blu-ray Disc is loaded with bonus materials including two featurettes, a design gallery with narration, a deleted scene and an audio commentary with the filmmakers. The Blu-ray Disc is available for the suggested retail price of $14.99.

From Baz Luhrmann – the director of The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge! – comes the hilariously funny romantic comedy that will leave you singing, laughing and cheering for more. Experience the magical story of a championship ballroom dancer who’s breaking all the rules. A hit with fans and critics all across the globe, Strictly Ballroom will hold you tight and dance straight into your heart.

This was such a good movie, I feel like they don’t make movies like this anymore (how old do I sound saying that!) but it’s true! I love the dancing and music in the movie and it definitely had me cheering for more!

I received a sample to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

Sounds like a great movie for me on a rainy day and no kids around.

This is one of my all-time favorites, and Paul Mercurio is soo cute! Very romantic.

I loved this movie when I saw it, and would love to see it again. So many movies today have no real romance in them the way this one does. I really wish they’d remake some of these movies, that aren’t all that old, but are long enough ago that these younger generations have absolutely no concept of it. It’s sad, really. Hope to find this locally.
