Ghostlight is illuminating
2 February 2005 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this film; not knowing much about Martha Graham or dance, I went to see it expecting to be bored, lost, or asleep. In contrast (to my expectations) I found it to be a very entertaining film that really was very unique ... comedic and dramatic, while enlightening me on what a force that Martha Graham really was. Although, I discovered later, that there was some artistic license taken to capture her very lengthy career in a 2 hour movie, it is a movie that is well worth seeing to get an understanding of the impact that she has had on American dance and theater.

A very entertaining and unique film.
