“The genius in the film is in how each section feeds each other, and indeed needs each other (the dance comments on the drama, and vice versa), and produces a wholly original and deeply affecting movie.”
- Kevin Maher, Times

“The highlight, though, is key archive footage of Acosta himself in his dancing prime, as the first black Romeo to perform with London’s Royal Ballet. His grace, athleticism and sheer star quality make it evident why he’s worth a movie of his own.”
- Trevor Johnston, Radio Times

“Superstar Cuban ballet dancer and choreographer Carlos Acosta takes us through his life in unusual style in this mix of drama and dance, fiction and reality. ‘Yuli’ swings between the art and the person. But here we have the added interest of the artist still very much alive and trying to make sense of his past.
- Dave Calhoun, Time Out

Based on the true story of acclaimed dancer Carlos Acosta, directed by Icíar Bollaín. From the BAFTA-winning writer of I, Daniel Blake, Paul Laverty
