|The Big Shot-Caller – Trailer
As a child, Jamie Lesser watched ‘Strictly Ballroom’ ninety-seven times a day and dreamed of becoming a salsa dancer. But in ‘real life’, his social awkwardness, failed love life and severe near-sightedness got in his way. After insurmountable disappointments, he turns to his estranged sister, Lianne, a streetwise, self-proclaimed hip hop dancing dynamo, who inspires him to follow his dream, reclaim his self-esteem and become what he was truly meant to be. A triumphant, heart-warming story played by real-life brother and sister David and Marlene Rhein (who also directs), and featuring the beats of the break out salsa band La Excelencia.
