"There comes a time to cut loose."
Writer/director Craig Brewer (HUSTLE & FLOW, BLACK SNAKE MOAN) delivers a new take of the beloved 1984 classic film, FOOTLOOSE. Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock.
A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out. Bomont’s local council representatives and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.
