Jig Poster


Spellbound goes to Ireland in this documentary about the competitive Irish folk dancing scene and the children who compete within. "Jig is possessed of a fierce energy – and an agreeable warmth. Even the parents are likeable! Put the ferocity down to the sport in question: competitive Irish dancing in the rigorous, straight-backed, legs-of-lightning, feet-of-thunder style made famous by Michael Flatley. There's no need to ask what's driving these kids: their exhilaration is contagious. More pushed than pushy, the parents we meet have often sacrificed recklessly to support their children's passions.
