The ultimate ballet film returns to the big screen digitally restored, having been championed by Martin Scorsese, for whom it was a great inspiration after he saw it as a child. Based on Hans Christian Andersen’s sinister fairy tale, THE RED SHOES fuses glamour, back stage detail and stunning dance sequences into an audacious, intoxicating melodrama about the competing claims of life and art. Introducing the young Scottish ballerina Moira Shearer whose flaming red hair becomes a dominant visual motif, THE RED SHOES survived damning reviews and producer betrayal to take its place as a milestone in film history. Possibly Technicolor’s finest hour. Showing as part of our #EnchantedScreen season -

Saw this in Canterbury with my Fairy Godmother.

She loved red shoes. I'm mentioning this in my eulogy at her funeral on Monday. Fabulous show.
