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. The film takes the audience through Nureyev’s poverty-stricken childhood in the Soviet city of Ufa, Russia to his blossoming as a student dancer in Leningrad. Audiences will watch Nureyev’s 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.
