Red Sparrow

Seduce. Deceive. Repeat.

We meet Jennifer Lawrence’s Dominika Egorova when she’s the toast of Moscow, a prima ballerina performing for the rich and politically powerful. After a jarring mishap leaves her without means to care for her sickly mother, she accepts an offer from her intelligence-heavyweight uncle (Matthias Schoenaerts) to get cozy with a government target. Dominika’s reluctant decision has awful consequences.

Poster for the espionage thriller Red SparrowShe’s packed off to a wintry training academy where Charlotte Rampling’s dour taskmistress schools prospective ‘sparrows’ in the art of espionage by seduction.

Dominika’s target is CIA operative Nate Nash (Joel Edgerton) and there’s real suspense in trying to understand her intentions. Red Sparrow is an arrestingly dark, violent, and genuinely unpredictable espionage thriller that takes risks across the board.
