Her unique style of dancing made her the guests of King's, Queen's, nobility and Russian revolutionaries, ultimately making her the 'peoples' dancer'.

This Oscar nominated film stars Academy Award winner Vanessa Redgrave in a stunning portrayal of Isadora Duncan who burns her parents' marriage license as a little girl and pledges her life to 'Beauty and Art'. Whilst her genius for dance and free spirit causes a sensation across Europe, her naive, effervescent radiance leads to an almost accidental succession of lovers in Gordon Craig (James Fox), Paris Singer (Jason Robards) and Sergel Essenin (Ivan Tchenko).
