The glamorous, turbulent life of Britain's international ballet superstar
At age 40, Dame Margot Fonteyn (Anne-Marie Duff - The Virgin Queen, Shameless) was one of the greatest ballerinas of the 20th Century. At her creative peak, she was a woman torn between her loyalties to the Royal Ballet and her marriage to unfaithful Panamanian diplomat, Roberto de Arias (Con O'Neill - Criminal Justice). Under mounting pressure to retire, Margot's unexpected pairing with young Russian émigré Rudolph Nureyev (Michiel Huisman - The Young Victoria) caused a global sensation and created one of the most enduring and stunning ballet partnerships of all time. Also starring Lindsay Duncan (Alice in Wonderland), Derek Jacobi (Endgame) and Penelope Wilton (Pride & Prejudice), Margot is a timeless tale of love, performance, passion and self-sacrifice.

Good video, although I was disappointed with the many technical requirements to watch this on my compter. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Loretta Ramseyer
I only watched a few minutes of this movie because I found it boring. Someone that is truly a die hard ballet fan would probably find it lovely.Published 10 months ago by GeorgiaGirlSays
Beautful dancing, but was kind of boring. It wasn't the whole story, just parts of stories and dances. Thanks Amazon for making Prime work this time.Published 11 months ago by Aminuts
Classic movements, a bit dated but video quality is pretty good.Published 13 months ago by Ian B. Nicoud
I must admit to expecting more from this compilation of ballets from Fonteyn. It seemed this movie were dances from the late '50s, early '60s, so don't expect a modern feel. Read morePublished 17 months ago by L. J. Conroy
This is a nice video to watch ballet at home. The Swan Lake production is very traditional. The dancers are very good, of course.Published 18 months ago by Kindle Customer
