Most red-blooded American women cannot resist a man like Antonio Banderas no matter what kind of movie snobs they are. After all, Banderas can wield big guns, bigger swords and rock that little Spanish accent of his. And as if the package couldnÕt get any better, now this handsome man is showing us his sensitive side in the new film Take the Lead. A little bit Mad Hot Ballroom (itÕs inspired by the same true story of dancer/teacher Pierre Dulaine), Take the Lead has Banderas instructing high school kids in the ways of ballroom dancing. Awww. See an advance screening tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Ronnies 20 Cine (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard, Sappington); this benefit for Cinema St. Louis (314-289-4150 or www.cinemastlouis.org) also includes a performance by ballroom dancers at 7 p.m. and Dance St. Louis before the screening.
