What do daughters learn from their fathers about
Dancing with My Father
An intimate view of marriage, divorce, and how adult love is shaped
by what a child learns at home.
Rock sets out to make a point about her father's emotional guardedness,
that it was hurtful, that it had a ripple effect which extended
into her own marriage. Her fatherís struggle to yield to her questions
while the world is, in effect, watching, is the surprise of this
family drama. With his help, Rock combines self-analysis and dynastic
saga as she traces her family demons from a tiny Jewish community
in Slovakia, to the immigrant neighborhoods of Cleveland, Ohio during
the early 20th Century. In the process she finally learns to dance
with her father and not around him.
