Posted: June 9th, 2017 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

Native Louisvillian Wendy Whelan was for years the prima ballerina of the New York City Ballet.

She retired from that heralded company a couple of years back.

This is a fascinating and quite intimate documentary about how all that came about.

There is engrossing footage of Ms. Whelan’s craft, displaying why she ascended to the top of the world of American ballet. But also her emotions as she contemplated the end of her run with the company.

The film is currently scheduled for but five showings in Louisville next weekend only, June 16-18 at the Speed Museum Theater.
