Ballet Shoes

Rated TBC by the BBFC


Harry Potter actor Emma Watson makes her TV debut in this feature-length adaptation of Noel Streatfeild's classic novel. Set in London during the 1930s, it tells the story of orphans Pauline, Petrova and Posy Fossil, who are adopted by eccentric explorer Gum - although it is his selfless niece Sylvia who does most of the hard work involved in raising them. The girls face further upheaval when their guardian disappears, and the cash-strapped Sylvia is forced to take in lodgers, but despite their impoverished circumstances, the sisters still have grand plans. Victoria Wood, Richard Griffiths and Marc Warren also star.
