Ari Vena in The World's Best Prom

The World's Best Prom

2005 NR

On the face of it, Racine, Wis., seems like any other humble, sweet-natured Midwestern town ... except it's mightily obsessed. And not with football or politics, like many other enclaves that dot the country, but with the senior prom. This fascinating documentary introduces viewers to Racine's residents, including a Catholic girl longing to explore the world and an impoverished teen seeking a way out through a solid education.
