Jennifer Lawrence takes the lead in Red Sparrow, a spy thriller hot off the heels of the excellent Atomic Blonde. A prima ballerina caught up in the assassination of a political enemy, Dominikia Egorova (Lawrence) is coerced into joining the Sparrow School to train to be become a Soviet secret agent. However, after graduating and placed on her first mission, when she starts to fall for her mark – an American CIA agent acting as a mole in Russia – it puts the mission and her life at risk, from both sides. With Hunger Games franchise director, Francis Lawrence, behind the camera, and a script from Justin Haythe (Revolutionary Road), hopefully the stunning, almost metallic visuals are backed up by tactile choreography and depth to the plot. Red Sparrow hits theatres March 2nd.
