There are certain crowds that have an extreme positive and anxious energy to them. One common example is the energy in a corral right before a race (I've only experienced running races, but I can imagine triathlons or cycling events to have a similar energy). Last night was the first time I experienced this same common energy in a non-competitive environment. The Girl Walk // All Day premiere felt like walking into a room of giddy 12 year-olds who where about to meet Justin Bieber. The unadulterated excitement in the venue was palpable.
Then the film began. A love letter to the New York as the creators have called it.
It's true, New Yorkers are infamous for their unconditional love of New York City. The crowd went wild for all of the New York landmarks, but it was about so much more than loving a city. It was about living life, and letting loose the dance that lives inside of you.
I have most definitely never been to a movie where the entire crowd is on their feet bouncing to the soundtrack. Of course, this particular soundtrack by Girl Talk is especially dance-inducing.
It's hard to describe how truly incredible the film is. All I can say is that it was impossible for any member of the audience to contain the dance that lived inside of them last night.
