Bringing in Baby: The White Crow

The incredible true story of legendary dancer Rudolf Nureyev is brought vividly to life by Academy Award®-nominee Ralph Fiennes and BAFTA winning 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.

Richly evoking the times on atmospheric 16mm, director Ralph Fiennes brings texture and emotional shading to this portrait of a brilliant, inscrutable man whose talent and temperament saw him rock the worlds of ballet and international relations
