Gabe Toro. Once upon a time, there was an outsider who came to a small town of limited imagination. But director Craig Brewer puts his own spin on the material, a remake based on the youth classic. A rambunctious opening sequence set to the title song features youths hoofing and smiling their way through an evening of youthful exuberance and the promise of tomorrow.

It was his son who perished in the car chase that defined the small town.
But while other directors or studios would have allotted that time to a dance showcase, where the townsfolk would have revealed themselves as hoofing superstars, Brewer takes great pains to establish this as a community of loving, God-fearing folks who obey the laws not because they are Aguador - Andy Bono - Playtheque 3 to routine, but because they have genuine lives to worry Footloose - Various - Golden Stars - The Best Of Popmusic - Die Geburtstags-Ausgabe .
