presents
THE RED SHOES (1948)

“In this masterpiece from the team of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, Moira Shearer plays a young ballerina torn between two controlling men, played by Anton Walbrook and Marius Goring. Australian Robert Helpmann makes a memorable on-screen contribution and the sublime Technicolor photography is by Jack Cardiff. This is perhaps the greatest of all films about the world of ballet.” DAVID STRATTON.

“Voluptuous in its beauty and passionate in its storytelling. You don’t watch it, you bathe in it” ROGEREBERT.

“A superb stylized fairy tale.” LEONARD MALTIN.

“The passion for art drives every single, extraordinary moment and it’s what makes the film’s glorious Technicolor images so forceful and moving, now restored to their full, shimmering beauty.” MARTIN SCORCESE.
