BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!

As a director, Ralph Fiennes shows the same alertness for rich characterization that he does as an actor. And that’s saying something. His talent shines in this look at the early life of ballet great Rudolf Nureyev, up to and including his defection from Russia and the Kirov Ballet at the Paris airport in 1961. He was 23.

White Crow
 is not a biopic. It’s an impressionistic glimpse at the forces driving Nureyev—something of a diva even then—to accept no borders or limits in letting his artistry run free. Working from a potent script by noted playwright and screenwriter David Hare, Fiennes gives his period drama a present-tense urgency that draws us into the life of Nureyev in the fascinating act of inventing himself.

Ukranian dancer Oleg Ivenko, a soloist at the Jalil Tatar Ballet Theater, brings just the right note of youthful energy and sexual swagger to the role, his eyes alert to every challenge and perceived threat.

Part thriller, part meditation on life and art, part portrait of a man on a tightrope, The White Crow may be juggling more themes than it can handle. But Fiennes makes the result a thing of bruising beauty and an exhilarating gift.
–Rolling Stone

"LOVELY, ELEGANT, IMPRESSIVE. A CLASSY -- AND RESPECTFULLY SEXY -- NIGHT AT THE MOVIES."  --Variety

“A richly textured drama that very nearly reincarnates the legendary artist and the Cold War era from which he sprang.”
–Chicago Reader
“Ivenko, who bears a strong resemblance to Nureyev, is transfixing” –Tribune News Service
