The evocative drama “The White Crow,” is about Rudolf Nureyev, the rebellious Russian ballet genius. “The White Crow” was directed by Academy Award®-nominee Ralph Fiennes, with the young Ukrainian dancer Oleg Ivenko in a star-making turn as Nureyev.
A young man of just 22, dressed in a black beret and a dark suit, is flying from St. Petersburg to Paris. It is 1961 and Rudolf Nureyev, not yet the imperious figure of legend, is a member of the world-renowned Kirov Ballet Company, travelling for the first time outside the Soviet Union. Parisian life delights Nureyev and the young dancer is eager to consume all the culture, art and music the dazzling city has to offer. But the KGB officers who watch his every move become increasingly suspicious of his behavior. When they finally confront Nureyev with a shocking demand, he is forced to make a heart-breaking decision, one that may change the course of his life forever and put his family and friends in terrible danger.
