A hit movie that became a cultural sensation, Flashdance delivers an electrifying mix of music, drama and dance that dazzles the senses as it touches the heart. Jennifer Beals stars as Alex Owens, a fiercely determined 18-year-old with one all-consuming dream: to study at the Pittsburgh Conservatory of Dance. Working during the day as a welder and at night as an exotic dancer. Alex bravely pursues her dream, undertaking an unforgettable journey that reveals the power of her convictions and teaches her the meaning of love. Directed by Adrian Lyne (Fatal Attraction, 9 ½ Weeks) and featuring the Oscar–winning song "Flashdance—What a Feeling," Flashdance is sparkling entertainment.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The story doesn't help Miss Beals either, because she's at her least convincing when having to register any emotion other than rapture.
Rotten: Unlike its grittily romantic predecessors, Flashdance is pure glitz.
Rotten: Virtually plotless, exceedingly thin on characterization and sociologically laughable, pic at least lives up to its title by offering an anthology of extraordinarily flashy dance numbers.
Rotten: Jennifer Beals shouldn't feel bad. She is a natural talent, she is fresh and engaging here, and only needs to find an agent with a natural talent for turning down scripts.
MY ALL TIME FAVORITE

I wasn't even born in the 80s, i was born in the 90s. this is one of THE BEST movies!!!
The way the plot is described is exactly how I interpreted the movie back in the 80s.
