Monday at the Movies

This documentary of the life of American ballerina Tanaquil Le Clercq has some wonderful ballet footage, but you don’t have to be a ballet fan to enjoy the movie or to appreciate the inspiration of a woman who managed to create a life for herself after illness robbed her of her ability to dance. It’s not maudlin; it’s a very dry martini, kind of like Tanny’s dancing.
