Steve is a talented gymnast who has given up competition and is working at his father's bike shop. Julie is the new girl at his old gym, who has moved to town to train with their powerful coach. Inspired by Julie, Steve resumes training. While dealing with the conflicts in their personal lives and the stress of training, they prepare for the US Olympic Trials.
Robin Crew (Olivia d'Abo) is a high school student who used to be a champion gymnast until she suffered a knee injury in the car accident which killed her father. She continues to train on her own and makes her school's gymnastics team, despite outside pressures from her step-father and the other gymnasts. Robin does, however, receive support from her mother and her new boyfriend (Keanu Reeves), as the crucial gymnastics meet approaches. This movie tries really hard to be Dirty Dancing or Flashdance and gets it all wrong in a way that is so right. Young Keanu Reeves. 80s tropes. 80s music. A bobo Tilda Swinton gymnastics coach with a mullet. Dead parents. Terrible writing. Lots and lots of things that make no sense. A highly enjoyable 90 minutes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrabbRouYyU
