Dancer Trailer and Poster

Steven Cantor‘s Dancer (2016) movie trailer and movie poster stars Sergei Polunin. Dancer‘s plot synopsis: “Ukrainian-born ‘bad boy of ballet’ Sergei Polunin became the Royal Ballet’s youngest ever principal dancer at age 19. But two years later — at the height of his success — he walked away from it all, resolving to give up dance entirely. Steven Cantor’s Dancer tracks the life of this iconoclastic virtuoso, from his prodigal beginnings in the Ukraine to his awe-inspiring performances in the U.K., Russia, and eventually the U.S., where he went viral after David LaChapelle filmed him dancing to Hozier’s ‘Take Me to Church.’Yet beyond celebrating the raw talent and wild ambition of Polunin, whose sights are now set on Hollywood, Dancer considers how wealth and success may not be enough when it comes to finding personal and professional identity.”

I am not what you would call a ballet person. Films like Black Swan and TV shows like Flesh and Bone changed my opinion on the art form. This may be another film that alters my and others’ opinion on the performance art. I don’t know what makes a good male ballet performer or what makes a bad one but Polunin seems like an athlete that treated ballet like a sport, a job, one that constantly trained for regularly. That dedication (plus the pressure) seems as though it took its toll on him.
