For you slightly more cultured types out there, you may be familiar with Rudolf Nureyev. He was a Russian ballet dancer who was widely thought of as being the greatest male dancer of his generation. More excitingly (for the purposes of biopic storytelling), he was the first Soviet artist during the Cold War to defect. It was no small thing. The KGB was hella pissed. The rest of the world got The Lord of the Dance, who liked to party as much as he liked to perform. But who was this guy anyway? Ralph Fiennes directs this largely pre-defection Nureyev story (and plays a small but important role). Marco and Chris had lots of positive things to say about it, but that’s only half the picture. Check out their review here.
