75th Anniversary Screening

In this Powell- and Pressburger-directed classic, Vicky Page (Moira Shearer) is an aspiring ballerina torn between her dedication to dance and her desire to love. While her imperious instructor Boris Lermontov (Anton Walbrook) urges to her to forget anything but ballet, Vicky begins to fall for the charming young composer Julian Craster (Marius Goring). Eventually Vicky, under great emotional stress, must choose to pursue either her art or her romance—a decision that carries serious consequences.

"It's cinema as music."
Martin Scorsese
"The film is voluptuous in its beauty and passionate in its storytelling. You don't watch it, you bathe in it."
Roger Ebert, RogerEbert.com
