Northern Noir Film Screenings: The Turning Point (1977) at Waterside, Manchester 23 March 2017 Tickets from £8.00 — Book now

This Golden Globe winning drama takes a peak at the world of American ballet. Delivered with a flamboyant attention to detail, The Turning Point draws from the feminist thought of its period to look at the conflict that can arise between career and family. The film is sure to delight audiences once again, as its cast, including Anne Bancroft (7 WomenThe Graduate) and Shirley MacLaine (The Trouble With Harry, The Apartment), prowl through the throwback backstage melodrama plotting.

The Turning Point screens with a pre-show talk at 19:15
