Movie Info

Josh Harvest, a hardened New York City teen from a broken home - and quietly one of the country's top dance club DJs and remixers - is sentenced to counseling for a minor drug infraction, along with an extended stay with his estranged father, who lives in a small town in North Dakota. He is slow to warm to his new environment, a town best-known for sending its young off to war, many of whom never return. But when Josh is asked to help out the last-place dance team as they vie for the state competition title, his rough exterior begins to soften. As his relationships emerge with both the team's captain, Mary, and his therapist, each of whom have lost someone special to war, it forces all three to begin to face and heal their pasts. (C) eOne

Critic Reviews for Bravetown

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (9)

Excruciating ... an unwieldy hybrid of high school dance competition movie and shameless flag-waver.

May 7, 2015 | Full Review…

First-time director Daniel Duran, working from a screenplay by Oscar Torres that abounds in the maudlin and risible, isn't able to lift the ham-handed material to a place where it might ring true.

May 7, 2015 | Full Review…

If only salutary intentions and one good performance could save a film so fundamentally wrongly conceived.

Top Critic

What's best about the film is its willingness to go deep, its strange yet effective fluidity between serious scenes and dance numbers, and Duran's grace with weighty subjects.

May 7, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

There is nothing brave about "Bravetown," a film so paint-by-the-numbers bland that its efforts to piggyback the sacrifice of American servicemen and women for emotional depth is downright craven.

May 7, 2015 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

I would call the movie a trainwreck, except it's really four or five separate trainwrecks.

May 7, 2015 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…
