Nope. Either I'm really bad at clues, or... I'm really bad at clues.

Though this is a sequel to an older movie, it could also be considered a reboot, as it has a totally different medium involved in the transport of the teenagers to the faraway land.

And yes, there's one clue that I could give that would totally give it away... but that's for the next clue.

I think the clues were fine - just took us a while to get it.

Here's the next one:

Two soldiers return home from service overseas, and we follow their lives, loves and family complications. There is trans-Atlantic communication, and the promise of a long hike.

Time for another hint. Here’s the extended clue.

Two soldiers return home from service overseas, and we follow their lives, loves and family complications. There is trans-Atlantic communication, and the promise of a long hike.

Both the film, and the music that’s an integral part of it, are British - specifically, Scottish.

Working out the band will help you find the movie.

The trans-Atlantic communication is by letter.

Sunshine on Leith. But I wouldn't have got it without the clues.

The letter is from America and the long hike is approximately 500 miles

The next clue...

An expatriate dancer returns home and pairs up with an unlikely partner. He wants to escape but doesn't know if he can trust his partner not to sabotage his attempt.

That's it. Take it away!

Love the scenes with Baryshnikov and Hines



Baryshnikov is the epitome of gracefulness, and Hines is just too smooth.
