a fictionalization of Martha graham's later years and tour.
I loved this film, it's portrayal of Martha Graham (by Richard Move) was both reverent and camp. I was fascinated by the cinematography, and the recreation of what appeared to be very old footage was amazing. The dance sequences are dazzling. Christopher Herrmann's brilliant direction allows us a very intimate look at Martha the legend. His personal relationship with Martha offers a glimpse into Martha's off stage personna that is drawn from the heart and written with poignancy and humor. This film also offers a glimpse back into the 70's with wonderful character actors recreating the gliterati of those years. Despite some uneven moments, this first film from Mr. Herrmann and Ms. Fearon will make a wonderful addition to your DVD collection. It is sure to become a cult classic.
