Overview and Review of the movie Make It Happen directed by Darren Grant.
Lauryn is this young woman from a small town in Indiana who moves to Chicago and left his brother to manage their auto shop with dreams of entering the Chicago School of Music and Dance. But after rejection and a series of unfortunate events, Lauryn then finds herself working in a burlesque club. The club proves to be a place of conflict and self-discovery, helping Lauryn to realize that even though plans may change, dreams never do.
It's a nice inspiring movie about dancing and pursuing one's dream.
I like this line in the movie: "Everybody who walks away from a dream has a reason and it's brave to give it another shot."
