20th Anniversary!

For 15 years after its breakout success, Hollywood looked for ways to capitalize off the Dirty Dancing caché — and find a newcomer who could match the “crazy for Swayze” fandom ignited by the performance of the original’s lead. The eventual 2004 sequel resulted in a fascinating attempt to launch Diego Luna into that “poster boy” world.

On the cusp of the Cuban revolution, expat teen Katey (Romola Garai) lives in Havana with her wealthy parents (Sela Ward, John Slattery). After meeting the swoon-y Javier (Diego Luna), who introduces her to Cuban dance, she finds herself further drawn to her young dance teacher. With a country on the brink of dramatic change, Katey must decide on leaving for her family or staying for love. A box office failure upon release, the film found fans on home video — many Latin American viewers among them — championing the film’s individual merits including Luna’s short reign as Swayze’s Latinx successor.
