"Fame" (1980) Directed by Alan Parker
"Fame" itself is not a bad movie.. as a matter of fact, it's pretty good! It follows the lives of a group of teenagers as they attend four years of high school at the New York High School of Performing Arts. We watch as some progress, some fail. "Fame" has outstanding choreography, and although it may be somewhat dated now, some excellent music. Irene Cara stars as "Coco", one of the central characters, and the rest of the cast may be pretty unknown but they still do a wonderful job portraying the struggles, the angst, the
pathos, and the suffering of young struggling artists.
