Aro Favourite Red Shoes, The


UK 1948, 133 minutes
Dir. Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger
Rating: [G]
Genres: Classics, Drama / Dance, Musical

Topics: Showbiz.


Aroview: Beloved dance classic is a strikingly realised story of a young ballerina who, in an echo of the Hans Christian Andersen story, becomes torn between two men who each represent her romantic and professional aspirations.

Centrepiece is the “Red Shoes” ballet, an audacious and hugely imaginative set piece that still takes the breath away. One of Martin Scorsese’s favourite films, and surely Baz Luhrmann’s as well.
