A city teenager moves to a small town where rock music and dancing have been banned, and his rebellious spirit shakes up the populace.


After moving from Chicago, Kevin Bacon (a.k.a. Ren McCormack) finds himself living in a small, midwestern town that’s outlawed dancing. Worse yet, said law is enforced by an angry John Lithgow, whose stern face and commanding tone are as terrifying as you are currently imagining them to be. Fortunately, Kevin Bacon (I do not care about his character’s name) is up for the challenge and strives to make his sad home footloose and fancy-free. Spoiler alert: he doesn’t fail. – ANNE T.
