Tonight at The Glasgow Film Festival Ralph Fiennes The White Crow made it’s Scottish Premiere. Ahead of it’s UK Premiere next month, Studiocanal has released a New Poster revealing Oleg Ivenko as Rudolf Nureyev.
Accompanying the new Poster is a new 30 second TV Spot, which does have a few tid bits of new footage. The promo does highlight the tension, restrictions Nureyev was under when he toured. He only had to ask for what he wanted…Freedom!
A young man of just 22, dressed in a black beret and a dark narrow suit, is on an aeroplane flying from St Petersburg to Paris. It is 1961 and Rudolf Nureyev, not yet the imperious figure of legend, is a member of the world-renowned Kirov Ballet Company, travelling for the first time outside the Soviet Union.
Parisian life delights Nureyev and the young dancer is eager to consume all the culture, art and music the dazzling city has to offer. But the KGB officers who watch his every move become increasingly suspicious of his behaviour and his friendship with the young Parisienne Clara Saint. When they finally confront Nureyev with a shocking demand, he is forced to make a heart-breaking decision, one that may change the course of his life forever and put his family and friends in terrible danger.
If you were unable to attend tonight’s Glasgow Film Festival Gala, there is an uncore gala tomorrow, 26th February, more info here.
The film also stars Adele Exarchopoulos, Chulpan Khamatova and Sergei Polunin.
The White Crow will be released in the UK and Irish cinemas from 22nd March.Powered by Sidelines
