The White Crow is an upcoming American Drama film directed by Ralph Fiennes and written by David Hare, Julie Kavanagh. "The White Crow" The defection of the dancer from the Soviet Union, which occurred in 1961, was a propaganda coup for the West in the Cold War. His decision, apparently last-minute, turned Nureyev, then 23, into a rare species: the best-known male dancer in the world. The one who had been a member of the famous Kirov Ballet, of the USSR, spent the next 30 years developing a brilliant career and delighting with his celebrity in the West.
Nureyev's character wants to be true to reality and appears as an egocentric, selfish and unstable being, probably as a result of childhood and youth marked by a total lack of freedom under the suffocating communist regime. However, he misses a greater deepening in his passion for dance and some more warmth in the presentation of his feelings.
Principal photography commenced on June 10, 2018 in Ohio, United States and concluded on January 15, 2019. The film is set for release on March 22, 2019.
