A Chorus Line is a 1985 movie directed by Richard Attenborough, based on the Broadway musical of the same name. The film follows a group of dancers as they audition for a spot in a Broadway show. The audition process is grueling and intense, as each dancer is asked to share their personal experiences and reasons for wanting to perform. The story is set in one afternoon, in one room, and is told primarily through a series of flashbacks and musical performances.

The cast of characters includes a mix of experienced dancers and newcomers, each with their own unique story to tell. Among them are Zach (played by Michael Douglas), the director who is auditioning the dancers, Cassie (Alyson Reed), a seasoned performer who has worked with Zach before, and Paul (Michael Blevins), who opens up about his difficult upbringing and struggles with his sexuality. There's also Diana (Amanda Hillwood), a confident dancer who has trouble with the more emotional aspects of the audition, and Mike (Terrence Mann), a comic relief character who provides some light-hearted moments throughout the film.

As the audition progresses, tensions rise among the dancers as they compete for a limited number of spots in the show. Some dancers experience injuries and are forced to drop out, while others must confront their own insecurities and fears. The musical numbers in the film range from upbeat and flashy to emotional and introspective, with each dancer given their moment to shine.

One of the highlights of the film is the closing number, "One," a show-stopping dance sequence that brings together all the dancers and showcases their talent and hard work. The scene is a testament to the power of dance and the dedication of those who pursue it as a profession.

Overall, A Chorus Line is a celebration of the hard work and dedication that goes into being a professional performer. The film explores the highs and lows of the audition process, as well as the personal sacrifices and challenges that come with pursuing one's dreams. The characters are relatable and complex, with each dancer adding their own piece to the mosaic of the Broadway world. The film is a must-see for fans of musical theater and anyone interested in the behind-the-scenes workings of a Broadway show.

A Chorus Line is a 1985 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 53 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2 and a MetaScore of 46.
