Dancing at the
This movie is about five women who work at the
Blue Iguana, a strip club, each for different reasons,
each looking for something. Angel (Daryl Hannah) wants a
family and actually believes that her low-rent apartment
would be a good place to care for a foster child. Joe
(Jennifer Tilly) plays an angry, sometimes violent
stripper/prostitute with little regard for anyone else.
Another dancer freely gives advice
and writes beautiful poetry in secret. Another dancer
has emotional problems stemming from her past family
life. And another is a flirtatious drug addict, looking
for a sugar daddy to care for all her needs.
The action takes place over a
couple of days, showing us a glimpse of the lives of
each of the women, as each one faces a personal demon.
Throughout the film, each girl dances and eventually
dancing styles of each of the girls grows to reflect
both their characters and their current emotions.
