Powell & Pressburger's The Red Shoes

"One of the most innovative films in British cinema." - The Independent

In this classic drama, Vicky Page (Moira Shearer) is an aspiring ballerina torn between her dedication to dance and her desire to love. While her imperious instructor, Boris Lermontov (Anton Walbrook), urges to her to forget anything but ballet, Vicky begins to fall for the charming young composer Julian Craster (Marius Goring). Eventually Vicky, under great emotional stress, must choose to pursue either her art or her romance, a decision that carries serious consequences.

"The film is voluptuous in its beauty and passionate in its storytelling. You don't watch it, you bathe in it." - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"Profoundly serious, sublimely innocent, yet deeply and mysteriously erotic. The 1948 ballet classic stands the test of time." - The Guardian

"What a cast, and what superbly florid but controlled direction. Unequalled Technicolor photography from Jack Cardiff. too." - London Evening Standard

"Wrapped up with gorgeous sparkly colour, off-the-beaten-track classical music selections, and a sinister edge that perfectly catches the ambiguity of traditional as opposed to Disney fairy tales, this remains a luminous masterpiece." - Empire Magazine
