Cast: Oleg Ivenko, Ralph Fiennes, Louis Hofmann, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Sergei Polunin

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 to impress Western audiences, but one dancer causes a sensation far beyond the stage: the electrifying Rudolf Nureyev (Oleg Ivenko), who, drawn to the city’s less restrictive culture, finds himself in a high stakes game of cat-and-mouse with the KGB. Inspired by Julie Kavanagh’s biography and scripted by David Hare, Fiennes’ evocative film depicts a wildly talented man whose astonishing life reverberated through the worlds of ballet and international relations.
