In the early 1960s the Cold War didn’t prevent the Soviet authorities from sending the renowned Kirov Ballet to Paris to demonstrate their cultural refinement. This unleashed the electrifying talent of a young Rudolf Nureyev, but the freedom he experienced also caused him to question whether he could ever find fulfilment in Russia. Director Fiennes offers a balanced portrait of an inscrutable man – played by Ukrainian dancer Ivenko in an astonishing debut – in a true story that also becomes a gripping suspense thriller.
