Film of the Day – Red Sparrow

Red Sparrow

The Hunger Games’ Jennifer and Francis Lawrence reconvene for this 2018 mystery-drama which tells the story of a prima ballerina, Dominika Egorova, who – after suffering a career ending injury during a performance live on stage – is thrust into a future of uncertainty. Jennifer Lawrence stars as Dominika and is joined by Jeremy Irons, Joel Edgerton and Charlotte Rampling.

After suffering a horrific injury live on stage, famed Russian ballerina Dominika Egorova has her life cast into uncertainty and vulnerability. To make things worse, she also finds herself responsible for her ailing mother. With no source of income and her sick mother reliant on her care, Dominika is approached by her uncle – who is revealed to work with the Russian secret service – who then offers her a favour in exchange for her help seducing a known gangster as part of a sting operation. Dominika’s life begins to spiral out of her control as she finds herself recruited to become a Sparrow – a secretive Russian organisation for female agents.
