The White Crow
with Oleg Ivenko, Ralph Fiennes, Louis Hofmann, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Sergei Polunin. 127 mins + trailers
Ralph Fiennes’ third directorial outing is a thrilling biopic of virtuosic ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev, whose defection from the USSR stunned the world at the height of the Cold War. In 1961: Soviet authorities send the Kirov Ballet to Paris, where one dancer causes a sensation far beyond the stage: the electrifying Nureyev (Oleg Ivenko), who, drawn to the West’s permissive culture, begins a high-stakes game of cat-and-mouse with the KGB. Scripted by David Hare, Fiennes’ evocative film depicts a wildly talented man whose astonishing life reverberated through the world.
