How She Move (2008)
Wednesday 9th July 2008
An energetic, gritty and inspiring story about a talented young woman who defies the rules to achieve her dreams, How She Move debuts on DVD from 4th August 2008, from Paramount Home Entertainment. Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, the film wowed audiences with its unflinching portrayal of life in a crime-infested neighbourhood and explosive sequences celebrating the unique urban art form of step dancing.
Directed by Ian Iqbal Rashid (Touch of Pink) and featuring a hot urban soundtrack with songs by Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes and Lil' Mama, How She Move is the gritty story of Raya Green's (Rutina Wesley) battle to escape her drug and crime-filled neighbourhood. After being accepted into the exclusive Seaton Academy, Raya's family hopes she will finally fulfill her full potential. Just as Raya begins to settle into her new life, things take a turn for the worse when her sister suddenly dies of an overdose, shattering her family life and forcing her to return to her home town.
Feeling trapped and looking for a way out, Raya sees her chance to escape through a local step contest offering a $50,000 prize. Persistence and passion prevail as she battles her way into an all-male team led by the reigning champ of the local steppin' scene, Bishop (Dwain Murphy). Sparks fly between Raya and Bishop and she finds herself in a battle between her loyalty, her determination, her family's ambitions and her heart.
How She Move marks the feature film debut of the electric Rutina Wesley, with street-style step sequences by celebrated choreographer Hi-Hat and special appearances by R&B singer-songwriter Keyshia Cole and comedian DeRay Davis, delivering a hugely uplifting and inspiring film experience.
