What happens when you compile a bunch of dance scenes from various films together into one video, along to the catchy Walk the Moon song, “Shut Up and Dance”? The result is impressively joyful.
This video features a number of indie and classic films where characters, well, just shut up and dance. Academy Award favorites like “Silver Linings Playbook,” “American Beauty” and “Slumdog Millionaire” get some attention. Then there’s smaller indies like the relationship deconstructing “Blue Valentine,” the Coen Brothers’ crime-comedy “Burn After Reading,” the delightful “Little Miss Sunshine,” the unconventional romantic comedy “(500) Days of Summer” and the 2014 UK comedy “Pride,” about gay activists helping miners during a 1984 strike.
Will you shut up and dance along to the video? Watch and find out.
