"Ralph Fiennes’ best film yet as a director."
- Geoffrey Macnab, Independent
"Even if ballet is not to your taste, Fiennes’s eye for period detail and David Hare’s pacey script forge a sprung platform from which Ivenko leaps almost as magnificently as the diva-like world-shaker himself."
-Karen Krizanovich, Radio Times
“The White Crow is as striking and stirring as its subject, the ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev, whose un-Soviet individualism earned him the nickname of the title.”
- Ed Potton, The Times
The incredible true story of legendary dancer Rudolf Nureyev is brought vividly to life by director Ralph Fiennes and screenwriter David Hare. From Nureyev’s poverty-stricken childhood in the Soviet city of Ufa, to his blossoming as a student dancer in Leningrad, to his 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.
