The incredible true story of legendary dancer Rudolf Nureyev (played by Oleg Ivenko) is brought vividly to life by actor-director Ralph Fiennes and BAFTA-winning screenwriter David Hare. From Nureyev’s poverty-stricken childhood in the Soviety city of Ufa, to his blossoming as a student dancer in Leningrad, to his nail-biting escape from the KGB and defection to the West at the height of the Cold War, The White Crow is a gripping, revelatory look at a unique artist who transformed the world of ballet forever.
Charlotte Rampling (45 YEARS, RED SPARROW, SWIMMING POOL) won Best Actress at the Venice Film Festival for her magnificent performance as Hannah, a woman whose life falls apart as she drifts between reality and denial after her husband’s imprisonment.
Beautiful, elegant and heart-breaking film making from Andrea Pallaoro (MEDEAS). A wrenching, intimate portrait of someone becoming disconnected from family, friends and society.
