Under the authoritarian rule of charismatic ballet impressario Boris Lermontov, his proteges realize the full promise of their talents, but at a price: utter devotion to their art and complete loyalty to Lermontov himself. Under his near-obsessive guidance, young ballerina Victoria Page is poised for superstardom, but earns Lermontov's scorn when she falls in love with Julian Craster, composer of "The Red Shoes," the ballet Lermontov is staging to showcase her talents. Vicky leaves the company and marries Craster, but still finds herself torn between Lermontov's demands and those of her heart.

1h 45min

Drama / Romance

Watch this original family Hollywood hit musical again and join in the fun of this sing-a-long version where you can belt out This Is Me and other loved hits from the chart topping   soundtrack.  The film celebrates the birth of show business and tells of a visionary who rose from nothing to create a spectacle that became a worldwide sensation.  Some will call   Barnum’s wide collection of oddities a freak show; however, when the obsessed showman gambles everything on the opera singer Jenny Lind to appeal to a high-brow audience, he   will somehow lose sight of the most important aspect of his life; his family.  Will Barnum risk it all to be accepted?
