The impeccable Moira Shearer stars as a ballerina who is torn between her love for a young composer and her passion for dance. THE RED SHOES may be most renowned as one of the great star-crossed romances but, like any film made in 1948, it is touched by the transitional state of the world after WWII. As co-director Michael Powell says in his memoir, “We had all been told for ten years to go out and die for freedom and democracy… and now the war was over, THE RED SHOES told us to go out and die for art.”

“The greatest film about ballet ever made.” – Melissa Anderson, L.A. Weekly
