A young dancer is torn between the man she loves and her pursuit to become a prima ballerina. The definitive ballet film, winning Oscars for art direction and music, and featuring a standout performance by real-life ballerina Moira Shearer, a character for whom art is more important than life itself.
Profoundly serious, sublimely innocent, yet deeply and mysteriously erotic THE GUARDIAN
