'Flashdance'
By day, Alex works in a steel mill, while at night she's an exotic dancer with dreams of being a ballerina. Perhaps, not the most realistic plot but, hey, neither is Pretty Woman. But, as my friend Iris always tells me when I'm feeling low, Flashdance is a great movie to lift you up and it really is. When she finally gets the chance to try out for her dream dance school, she blows the competition away, making her no longer just a steel town girl on a Saturday night.
