- 2h 19min
- Directed by: Francis Lawrence
- Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Mary-Louise Parker
Dominika (Lawrence) is a beautiful Bolshoi ballerina forced to go to spy school and seduce American agent Nate (Edgerton). Not an action vehicle but a dialogue-heavy spy story, surprisingly downbeat and sometimes genuinely nasty, but Lawrence gives a complex and balanced performance, the cast is strong and the topicality gives it an edge.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
