Based on the life of the famed ballet choreographer George Balanchine, Three Movements follows a fictional choreographer as he nurses his wife, his greatest dancer, through polio. Unable to face the reality that she will never dance again, he convinces himself he can save his muse. Soon frustrated with her lack of progress, however, he leaves her to pursue a very promising teenage dancer. Three Movements examines the complex relationship between choreographer and dancer, the power of eroticism in art, and how people choose (or refuse) to confront illness and the aging process.
