There is always that one movie that can make you sit there and think wow. We love all types of movies and when I had, the chance to see High Strung before it’s out in the movies, I was more than excited too.
A film that’s based in New York City, where everyone’s dreams can come true. This film is about two talented people, Ruby is a dancer from the Midwest on scholarship, living her first day in New York City. JOHNNIE BLACKWELL is a British musician, playing for money in the subway tunnels.
Their two lives are about, to meet. After a subway platform hip – hop battle goes wrong, these two lives will be entwined. Johnnys prized violin is stolen after a dance-off, and Ruby is more then determined to help him find it. These two don’t get along well; he does not like her help. But that will all change in time. She wants to help him, and rents him a violin from her school, to have him say he didn’t want it. The two must navigate their opposing worlds and prepare for a competition where winning or losing will change their lives forever.
Soon they will be competing in the New York City, with his violin skills and her dancing skills they are bound to win this competition. They do ask the dance crew The SwitchSteps, to join them for the chance to win this thing, With a combination of Hip-hop and classic and contemporary dance moves, they put together a great piece. With Johnny playing the violin and them dancing they are going to take this competition by storm. The whole time Rudy is hoping that the guy, from the pawn shop, calls and tells her they found Johnnys violin, The day of the competition Johnnys hauled down to the police station, as the crew is waiting patiently for him.
He makes it, and she presents him with his grandpa’s violin, they go on to do their number and amaze the whole audience. They finish and no ones were clapping until one person claps and the entire room is standing. They announce the winners and it’s them; they save Rudy’s scholarship and Johnny from being deported. If you love the thrill of a movie them, this is for you.
