    The life and career of legendary English ballet dancer Margot Fonteyn is explored in a comprehensive documentary from filmmaker Tony Palmer. A woman whose remarkable experiences would read as fiction if they weren't all rooted in fact, Fonteyn was taken as an underage mistress before marrying a Panamanian Ambassador, surviving an attempted coup, and being romantically linked to a number of high-profile - and often homosexual - public figures. Later forming one of the most fruitful partnerships in ballet history when she teamed with Rudolf Nureyev at the age of forty, Fonteyn would move on to become a cultural icon of beauty and elegance. Later betrayed by her husband and left to face death a penniless recluse, Fonteyn is a woman whose story continues to inspire despite its tragic end. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
