A Chorus Line (1985)

Film details


Based on the Broadway musical. An open audition for parts in a chorus line is whittled down from hundreds to seventeen. The show's director, Zach, tries to delve beyond the young hopefuls' showbiz-hardened outer personalities to find their inner fears and aspirations. Zach's final choice (just eight are needed) will depend not only on how well they dance, but on who they are inside.
