1948 Academy Award winner ‘The Red Shoes’ is the classic tale of a young ballerina torn between her art and her romance with a young composer. Created by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, it is the quintessential backstage drama and dance film, as well as one of the most glorious Technicolor feasts ever created. The beloved classic has been restored for new generations to experience and lives on as an enthralling tribute to the life of the artist and a milestone work of British cinema.
