The Red Shoes

Medicine Hat News - - TV -

6 p.m. on One of the most vis­ually beau­ti­ful films ever made, this 1948 drama stars Scot­tish-born bal­le­rina Moira Shearer as a dancer torn be­tween her art and her new love: the com­poser of a bal­let based on the Hans Chris­tian An­der­sen fairy tale “The Red Shoes.” That’s the one about the girl whose magic shoes force her to dance un­til she drops dead. Noth­ing good can come of that, but the movie’s cen­ter­piece — the bal­let it­self — is a knock­out.
