Win The White Crow on Blu-ray and biography of Rudolf Nureyev
Academy Award®-nominee Ralph Fiennes and Bafta-winning screenwriter David Hare bring the incredible true story of the legendary Rudolf Nureyev, one of the greatest and most famous ballet dancers of the 20th century, vividly to life in The White Crow, a film inspired by Julie Kavanagh’s 2007 biography Rudolf Nureyev: The Life.
Starring dancer and actor Oleg Ivenko as the young Nureyev, Adéle Exarchopolous (Blue is the Warmest Colour), Louis Hoffman (Alone in Berlin), and directed by Ralph Fiennes, The White Crow tells the story of Nureyev’s poverty-stricken childhood in the Soviet city of Ufa, to his blossoming as a student dancer in Leningrad under the tutelage of his early mentor Pushkin (Ralph Fiennes). His desire to break with the conventions of traditional ballet and become the most significant male dancer in the world ultimately leads to a nail-biting escape from the KGB and his defection, in 1961 in Paris, while on the Kirov Ballet’s first tour to the West, at the height of the Cold War.
With lovingly recreated period scenes of Leningrad in the 50s and Paris in the 60s and mesmerising ballet sequences, The White Crow is a visually rich, gripping and revelatory portrait of a complicated, fascinating and unique artist who transformed the world of ballet forever.
The White Crow is available on Digital Download, Blu-ray and DVD from 5th August 2019. Order your copy here.
