last thursday i told jordan that when we FINALLY get around to joing netflix, i want to rent the red shoes. i first saw this 1948 movie based on the story of shoes that won't stop dancing during a lincoln center film festival in new york a few years ago. i loved the performance of the red shoes ballet in the movie and was excited to see it again. a few minutes after my request, jordan discovered that the movie was playing as part of a free film series put on by the local bookstore, the tattered cover.
obviously, we had to go see the movie. it was as good as i remembered. the dance performance is still my favorite part, followed by moira shearer's bright red hair. if you like color, technicolor in particular, this is a film for you.
the next night i broke in my new irregular choice shoes i bought in new york. they aren't red, but they do have red soles, so i was sure to be careful when i wore them.
