PG-13 | | Drama, Music, Romance
High school senior Katey moves to Havana in November 1958, when her dad gets a promotion at Ford. She meets a local waiter, who introduces her to sensual Cuban music/dance. They enter a big dance contest for the prize when he gets fired.
Natalie Portman was considered for the role of Katey, and Ricky Martin was considered for the role of Javier. They were both the first choices.
They sure spiced up our old routine, huh?
Bert Miller: I'll say. That wouldn't have gone over too well at Roseland, would it?
Jeannie Miller: No.
When Javier leaves Katey on the beach after walking her home from La Rosa Negra, he puts his jacket over his arm twice in subsequent shots.
