The White Crow: Review

The White Crow is a 2018 British film written by David Hare and directed by Ralph Fiennes starring Oleg Ivenko as the ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev. It is inspired by the book Rudolf Nureyev: The Life by Julie Kavanagh.

The film is way far beyond the true story about gay life of the artist. Does not explore the gay bars of Paris as well his dead due AIDS. The film is also anti-URSS, maybe because Nureyev didn’t like the rules of the regime, or maybe also because the director is British. It would be important for the film to show that Gorbachev allowed him to return to URSS to visit his family and friends. It is good the fact that the director of this film showed the ego of the artist and success.
