Directed by Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger
Starring Anton Walbrook, Marius Goring, Moira Shearer

Experience Powell and Pressburger’s magical interpretation of Hans Christian Andersen’s sinister fairy tale on the big screen, as it celebrates its 75th anniversary

In Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger’s visually ravishing masterpiece, a young ballerina is torn between the demands of love and art. Like the heroine of Hans Christian Andersen’s source fairytale, whose magic shoes compel her to dance, Victoria Page – played by real-life ballerina Moira Shearer – finds herself driven to breaking point by obsessive Russian impresario Lermontov (Anton Walbrook) when she’s cast in his ballet The Red Shoes.
