THE WHITE CROW
The incredible true story of legendary dancer Rudolf Nureyev is brought vividly to life by Academy Award-nominee Ralph Fiennes and BAFTA winning screenwriter David Hare. From Nureyev’s poverty-stricken childhood in the Soviet 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. With his magnetic presence, Nureyev emerged as ballet’s most famous star, a wild and beautiful dancer limited by the world of 1950s Leningrad. His flirtation with Western artists and ideas leads him into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse with the KGB. Ralph Fiennes' The White Crow was inspired by the book, “Rudolf Nureyev: The Life” by Julie Kavanaugh.
