The White Crow
The story of Rudolf Nureyev’s defection to the West.
The White Crow is a sumptuous biopic about Rudolf Nureyev, the volatile ballet star born in poverty who changed the very nature of dance to become a cultural icon. The film employs flashbacks to tell Nureyev’s fascinating story, but concentrates on his high profile defection from the Soviet Union to the West in 1961.
'Finds contrast between Nureyev’s physical grace and his considerably more abrasive personality.' Amber Wilkinson, Eye For Film
