Fame

an updated version of the 1980s' musical.

Few films have made as big an impact as Fame. The 1980’s blockbuster made legwarmers fashionable and helped spark a dance craze around the world. But Fame came back as a remake in 2009 starring Kelsey Grammer (Frasier/Cheers) and original cast member Debbie Allen. But how did it compare to the original?

Only one thing is important to students at the New York City High School of Performing Arts: fame. However, this doesn’t come easily. As the tagline says, “How big you make' it is all about how far you take it”. The aspiring stars must work hard and compete against each other to achieve their dreams. They also have to deal with the everyday pressures of high school that come from homework, friendships and romance. The film follows the students as they experience the highs and the lows of training to become a star.
