The Red Shoes

Saturday, Mar 23 at 1:00 pm

Location: Redstone Theater

Dirs. Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger. 1948, 133 mins. 4K DCP. With Anton Walbrook, Moira Shearer, Marius Goring. Powell and Pressburger’s influential backstage drama masterpiece is the story of a rising star ballerina (Shearer) who comes undone by her own perfectionism for her craft, while also becoming embroiled in a love triangle. Meticulously directed, with eye-popping Technicolor cinematography by Jack Cardiff, The Red Shoes features an unforgettable extended fantasy ballet, Oscar-winning art direction and musical score, and a memorable climax that tragically expresses about how art can completely consume a life.
