Shall We Dance? is a 2004 American film that is a remake of the award-winning 1996 Japanese film of the same name.
John Clark (Richard Gere) is a lawyer with a charming wife (Beverly, played by Susan Sarandon) and loving family, who nevertheless feels that something is missing as he makes his way every day through the city. Each evening on his commute home through Chicago, John sees a beautiful woman staring with a lost expression through the window of a dance studio. Haunted by her gaze, John impulsively jumps off the train one night, and signs up for ballroom dancing lessons, hoping to meet her. At first, it seems like a mistake. His teacher turns out to be not Paulina (Jennifer Lopez), but the older Miss Mitzi (Anita Gillette), and John proves to be just as clumsy as his equally clueless classmates Chic (Bobby Cannavale) and Vern (Omar Miller) on the dance-floor. Even worse, when he does meet Paulina, she icily tells John she hopes he has come to the studio to seriously study dance and not to look for a date. But, as his lessons continue, John falls in love with dancing. Source: Wikipedia.
This post works better if you listen Santa Maria (Del Buen Ayre), performed by Gotan Project, from the Shall We Dance original soundtrack.

A Dame to Kill For
Dwight McCarthy (Josh Brolin) attempts to put his violent past behind him, working as a private detective and leading a life of complete sobriety, struggling daily to refuse his inner demons. He receives an unexpected phone call from his former lover Ava Lord (Eva Green), who left Dwight four years prior for a wealthy tycoon, Damian Lord (Marton Csokas). She begs him to meet her at Kadie’s saloon, and despite his embittered feelings, he agrees. When Ava arrives, she begs forgiveness for leaving him, and infers she is afraid for her life before her massive chauffeur, Manute (Dennis Haysbert) arrives to escort her home. Unable to get her out of his mind, Dwight sneaks into Damian Lord’s estate, where he observes Ava swimming, but is caught and beaten for his trouble. Dwight is returned home, where a nude Ava waits for him. He tries to throw her out, but can’t resist her and they make love. She tells him that Damian and Manute torture her physically and mentally, and she knows Damian will kill her soon. Manute arrives and viciously beats a naked Dwight, tossing him out a window.
Determined to rescue Ava, Dwight recruits Marv to help him, and they mount an assault on Lord’s compound. Marv attacks Manute, putting him in traction and tearing out his eye. Dwight confronts Damian Lord, who denies Ava’s accusations, and an enraged Dwight beats him to death. As he reacts in horror, Ava appears and shoots Dwight several times, taunting him and thanking him for helping her murder her husband and take over his business. She shoots him in the face and forces him to fall out of a window, where Marv rescues him and takes him to Old Town. Dwight’s old flame, Gail (Rosario Dawson), recognizes him and saves his life. With the help of Gail and the deadly assassin Miho (Jamie Chung), Dwight undergoes reconstructive surgery on his face and plots his revenge. Source: Wikipedia.
The fourth season of the epic fantasy television series Game of Thrones premiered on April 6, 2014, on HBO. It is based on the second half of A Storm of Swords, the third of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R. R. Martin, of which the series is an adaptation. David Benioff and D. B. Weiss serve as main writers and showrunners for the fourth season. They co-wrote seven out of ten episodes. The remaining three episodes were written by Bryan Cogman (two episodes), and the author of A Song of Ice and Fire, George R. R. Martin (one episode).
“The Children” is the tenth and final episode of the fourth season of HBO’s fantasy television series Game of Thrones, and the 40th overall. The episode was written by series co-creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, and directed by Alex Graves. It aired on June 15, 2014. “The Children” was watched by 7.09 million Americans during its premiere hour, a 32% increase from the previous season finale.
After the episode premiered, fans of the novel series voiced their displeasure over the omission of Lady Stoneheart, a character from the end of A Storm of Swords. This was in part fueled by a photo posted to Instagram two months earlier by actress Lena Headey that many fans assumed was a confirmation of the character’s inclusion in the finale. A day later, director Alex Graves stated that the character was never planned to appear in the fourth season, and that he didn’t know whether she would appear in the fifth one.
Episode: The Children (410). Date of Exhibition: June 15, 2014. Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss. Directed by Alex Graves. Summary: Jon Snow treats with Mance Rayder, but their negotiations are interrupted when Stannis Baratheon and his army suddenly arrive, defeating the Wildling army and taking Mance prisoner. Later, the Night’s Watch burn the bodies of their dead while Jon burns Ygritte beyond the wall. Bran and his party come upon the large Heart Tree from his visions, but as they arrive they are attacked by reanimated skeletons; though Jojen is killed, Bran, Hodor and Meera are saved by a child of the forest who takes them to the Three-Eyed Raven. In Meereen, Daenerys reluctantly grants a former slave’s wish of being sold into slavery again. The next citizen brings her the charred remains of his daughter who was burned by one of her dragons. As a precaution, Daenerys chains and locks her other dragons in the catacombs. In the Vale, Brienne and Podrick come upon Arya and the Hound. Brienne mortally wounds the Hound, while Arya escapes. With the coin Jaqen H’ghar gave her, Arya buys passage on a ship bound for Braavos. Meanwhile in King’s Landing, Cersei orders Qyburn to do anything to save the Mountain. She confronts her father and refuses to marry Loras, threatening to reveal her and Jaime’s incestuous affairs if she is forced to. Tyrion is released from his cell by Jaime, but he later finds Shae in Tywin’s bed and kills her in a struggle. He then confronts his father in the privy and shoots him with a crossbow, before escaping the city with Varys.
Arya: Are you a knight?
Arya: But you know how to use that sword?
Brienne: I do.
Arya: Does it have a name?
Arya: Mine’s Needle.
Brienne: Good name.
The Hound: You’re paid by the Lannisters. You’re here for the bounty on me.
Brienne: I’m not paid by the Lannisters.
The Hound: No? Fancy sword you’ve got there. Where’d you get it? I’ve been looking at Lannister gold all my life. Go on, Brienne of fucking Tarth. Tell me that’s not Lannister gold.
Brienne: Jaime Lannister gave me this sword.
Brienne: Come with me, Arya. I’ll take you to safety.
The Hound: Safety? Where the fuck’s that? Her aunt in the Eyrie is dead. Her mother’s dead. Her father’s dead. Her brother’s dead. Winterfell is a pile of rubble. There is no safety, you dumb bitch. You don’t know that by now, you’re the wrong one to watch over her.
Brienne: And that’s what you’re doing? Watching over her?
The Hound: Aye, that’s what I’m doing.
The Hound: Go on, go after her. She’ll help you. Going it alone, you won’t last a day out there.
Arya: I’ll last longer than you.
The Hound: You remember where the heart is? Fuck it. I’m ready. Go on, girl. Another name off your list.
Tyrion: All my life you’ve wanted me dead.
Tywin: Yes. But you refused to die. I respect that. Even admire it. You fight for what’s yours. I’d never let them execute you. Is that what you fear? I’ll never let Ilyn Payne take your head. You’re a Lannister. You’re my son.
Tyrion: I loved her.
Tywin: Oh, Tyrion. Put down that crossbow.
Tyrion: I murdered her. With my own hands.
Tywin: It doesn’t matter.
Tyrion: Doesn’t matter?
Tywin: She was a whore.
Tyrion: Say that word again…
Tywin: And what? You’ll kill your own father in the privy? No. You’re my son. Now, enough of this nonsense.
Tyrion: I am your son and you sentenced me to die. You knew I didn’t poison Joffrey, but you sentenced me all the same. Why?
Tywin: Enough. We’ll go back to my chambers and speak with some dignity.
Tyrion: I can’t go back there. She’s in there.
Tywin: You’re afraid of a dead whore?
Tywin: You shot me. You’re no son of mine.
Tyrion: I am your son. I have always been your son.
