The Red Shoes (1948)

One of Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s most cherished films, this richly crafted fantasy set in the London dance world celebrates its 75th anniversary. A ballet director (Anton Walbrook) enlists an up-and-coming dancer (Moira Shearer) to star in his next production. Torn between her career and her love for a young composer (Marius Goring), she becomes seemingly possessed by her red ballet slippers.
