Prima ballerina Dominika Egorova faces a bleak and uncertain future after she suffers an injury that ends her career. She soon turns to Sparrow School, a secret intelligence service that trains exceptional young people to use their minds and bodies as weapons. Egorova emerges as the most dangerous Sparrow after completing the sadistic training process. As she comes to terms with her new abilities, Dominika meets a CIA agent who tries to convince her that he is the only person she can trust.
Darren Aronofsky’s Mother! from last year was high art – pretty difficult to watch and understand, but not a good film in the end. Likewise, Red Sparrow is far from your typical spy thriller, but at the same time, by no means a bad film.
