Footloose: Special Collector's Edition is a coming-of-age musical about a young man from Chicago who moves to a socially conservative town in Utah. When Ren McCormack (Kevin Bacon) arrives in Bomont, it is clear that he doesn't fit in with the rest of the crowd. He quickly becomes friends with Willard Hewitt (Christopher Penn), however, and learns from him that the town banned dancing and rock and roll following a fatal accident several years back in which a group of teenagers were killed after visiting a music club in a nearby town. Shortly thereafter, Ren becomes involved in a romantic relationship with Ariel Moore (Lori Singer), the town's wild child who also happens to be the daughter of Reverend Shaw Moore (John Lithgow), the man who spearheaded Bomont's ban of dancing and rock music. Together, Ren, Willard and Ariel's best friend Rusty (Sarah Jessica Parker) strive to make the town rescind the ban so that the high school can have a prom dance.moreless
