Not sure what provoked somebody at Walt Disney to want to release a special edition of Baz Luhrmann’s dancing comedy especially since it is a Miramax Films release. Nevertheless, the romantic comedy that will make viewers want to cut a rug in their own living room comes to DVD on April 6, 2010 with a retail price of $19.99. Forget Dancing with Stars, this is Strictly Ballroom. The release comes with a brand new making-of documentary (“Strictly Ballroom: From Stage to Screen”) as well as four design galleries, a deleted scene, the “Samba to Slow Fox” dance featurette, and an audio commentary by Lurhmann, production designer and co-costumer Catherine Martin and choreographer John O’Connell.
From Baz Luhrmann – the director of the award-winning hits Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge! – comes the hilariously funny romantic comedy that’s sure to leave you laughing, cheering and feeling great! It’s the magical story of a championship ballroom dancer who’s breaking all the rules, and his ugly duckling dance partner. Together they make their dreams come true!
