Red Sparrow
USA, 2017 | Director: Francis Lawrence Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Mary-Louise Parker, Joel Edgerton

Lean, mean, swift and sure, this deftly paced action spy thriller presents an intriguing look at the world of espionage, spearheaded by a compelling lead played by Jennifer Lawrence (»The Hunger Games«, »Silver Linings Playbook«). The Academy Award winner portrays Dominika Egorova, a Russian prima ballerina who, after a career-ending injury, finds herself manipulated into becoming the newest recruit for Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people like her to use their bodies and minds as weapons. After enduring the perverse and sadistic training process, Dominika must reconcile the person she was with the power she now commands, with her own life and everyone she cares about at risk, including an American CIA agent (Edgerton; »Warrior«, »Bright«) who tries to convince her he is the only person she can trust.
