By late 2013, Wendy Whelan had spent more than two decades as prima ballerina for the New York City Ballet. Now, after forty years as a dancer, she was suddenly confronted with the possible end of her career. She was facing surgery for a torn labrum in her right hip. Her boss, Peter Martins, was gently dropping hints that she should retire. Her own doubts led her to consider fleeing ballet and taking up modern dance.
"Restless Creature" is a documentary shot during this upheaval in Whelan's life. It's a look inside the world of dance, and a peek into the life of one of the art's greatest exponents. It's also a story of grace, determination, and courage.
