For the Madonna fans that are still worried that she’s being discussed in a negative light we can confirm that you do not need to fear as there is nothing but positivity when it comes to her. There is some incredible footage in the movie from ‘Truth Or Dare’ (for which was given permission) and archive news footage of the Blond Ambition Tour. This film is all about the dancers of THAT groundbreaking tour and what happened to them after it? 

It’s quite an emotional journey from beginning to end, but you can’t help but be touched by the honesty and vulnerability of the dancers. Ester Gould and Reijzer Zwaan did an incredible job on this film, we truly urge everyone in the USA to go out and experience it!
