''Fame'' is a dance movie you need to see

Director Alan Parker's landmark dance ensemble piece follows four students of varying archetypes (the sensitive gay man; the painfully shy girl; the brash brute; and the straight-arrow good girl) as they chase spotlight dreams at the New York City High School for the Performing Arts. Pop in the disc for the feel-good struggle story; stay for the Academy Award-winning song and pre-Fly Girl dance moves.
