The Company in October - Menu Screens added
Momentum Pictures have announced the UK Region 2 DVD release of The Company for 11th October 2004 priced at £19.99. Director Robert Altman follows up the success of Gosford Park with an intimate look behind the scenes of the world of a ballet company as only Altman could envision it: the difficult daily work, the enormous pressures of performance, the richly textured behaviours of the dancers whose professional and personal lives grow impossibly close and, of course, the sheer beauty of the dances.
The story of the complex lives, loves, dramas and triumphs of a group of aggressively talented dancers over a season is played with superb flair by Neve Campbell, who also co-wrote the story with Barbara Turner, the enigmatic Malcolm McDowell and James Franco. The Company also features The Joffrey Ballet of Chicago, one of the world’s leading ballet companies whose innovations have influenced dance companies across America.
