Rudolf Nureyev, a remarkable young dancer of 22, is a member of the world-renowned Kirov Ballet Company, travelling to Paris in 1961 for his first trip outside the Soviet Union. But KGB officers watch his every move, becoming increasingly suspicious of his behaviour and his friendship with the young Parisienne Clara Saint. 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.

The main cast of The White Crow stars world-class ballet performer Oleg Ivenko as Rudolf Nureyev, Adèle Exarchopoulos (Blue is the Warmest Color) as Nureyev’s great friend, Clara Saint and Fiennes as the famous Russian ballet coach, Alexander Pushkin. The rest of the cast also includes dancer Sergei Polunin, Chulpan Khamatova, Oliver Rabourdin and Raphael Personnaz and Louis Hofmann.
