Watch High Strung (2016) Movie on Putlocker, When a hip hop violinist busking in the New York subway encounters a classical dancer on scholarship at the Manhattan Conservatory of the Arts, sparks fly. With the help of a hip hop dance crew they must find a common ground while preparing for a competition that could change their lives forever. Thanks to Mr. Scott, whose work acts like a defibrillator on the snoozy screenplay, this chaste romance between a golly-gosh ballerina (Keenan Kampa) and a tormented-soul violinist (Nicholas Galitzine) remains living, if never fully alive. Set in a fictional performing-arts school (mostly played by a conservatory in Bucharest) in a fantastical Manhattan, the story strings pearls of performance on the flimsiest of plots. She’s a Midwestern classicist struggling to master contemporary dance; he’s a subway-busking Brit facing deportation. What they need is a String & Dance competition oh, wait. As predictable as the candles-and-roses-strewn loft where the couple’s matching pouts first collide, “High Strung” prefers penciled-in stereotypes the queen bee; the risk-taking roommate to real characters. Yet tween girls will swoon for Mr. Galitzine’s broody cheekbones and Ms. Kampa’s ingénue sweetness. The dialogue may be dire, but the dancing is delightful. (Ms. Kampa formerly danced with the Mariinsky Ballet in Russia.) And who can complain about a Manhattan where subway platforms are filled with gyrating hard hats in muscle shirts and tight jeans? Certainly not me.
