Kevin Bacon leapt to stardom in this stand-up-and-cheer film that bursts with hit songs and dance moves. Ren McCormick (Bacon) is a big-city kid looking for some fun. But after Ren moves to the sleepy Midwest and discovers that the town's uptight minister (John Lithgow) has placed a ban on dancing, he decides to take a stand. With his best friend (Chris Penn) and the minister's rebellious daughter (Lori Singer), Ren wages a fight for their right to shake, rattle and roll—a campaign that will have the town in an uproar...and the kids dancing in the street. With an infectious soundtrack featuring Deniece Williams' "Let's Hear It For the Boy" and Kenny Loggins' chart-topping title song, Footloose is one movie with all the right moves! Directed by Herbert Ross (Steel Magnolias, The Secret of My Success, The Goodbye Girl).
