Watching Mills' film, one wishes it were as weird and wonderful as Irene herself. It's almost as if the writer/director doesn't realize how rare his own creation is.

There's a warm-hearted tale here suffused with wit and a positive and life-affirming message about having the confidence to achieve your goals in the face of adversity.

From first tentative rehearsals to road trip, you can see where the "let's put on a show" gumption is going. But the newly empowered teenage choreographer and her ragtag troupe ride their own giddy momentum.

It's a small picture with modest ambitions, but that doesn't have to be a bad thing.
