If you’re anything like me many of the British films you hear about and are excited to see never come to your local cinema. My nearest art house theater is about an hour away so I often find myself forgoing that trek and waiting for the DVD release instead. One example of such a motion picture is Cuban Fury which I finally got to watch via digital download.
This film tells the story of Bruce Garrett (Nick Frost) who, as a young man, was a salsa dancing phenom. However, after a vicious beating by some bullies, Bruce retired his sequins and quit the competitive dance circuit.
Flash forward to present day and we find that Bruce works for an industrial equipment company and lives a joyless, lonely existence. His sister and former dance partner, Samantha (Olivia Colman) and his golf buddy, Gary (Rory Kinnear) are his only support system. Then one day Bruce’s new boss Julia (Rashida Jones) arrives from America and his cautious life is changed forever.
