Little inside family story here. The daughter of one of our closest friends, whom we have known almost her entire life, is an outstanding dancer. Naturally, The Film Professor told her that she must watch The Red Shoes. Today, still, she has not and today, still, he asks her if she has seen the movie yet. Too funny. As for the movie, it is described often as one of the most beautifully photographed films ever made. The story is about a ballerina and the tension between her wanting to become a prima ballerina and the man she loves. Just beautiful.
