We enjoyed this film. Jennifer Lawrence is convincing with her emotionless, “just doing my job” persona. Joel Edgerton is fine as the emotional American. Charlotte Rampling is frightening as the cold instructor. Mary-Louise Parker’s Stephanie Boucher is fabulous. The rest of the supporting cast – Joely Richardson, Jeremy Irons, Ciarán Hinds and Matthias Schoenaerts are satisfactory. There is intense violence and nudity. Not as heart pounding as I like, but it keeps you guessing. The music can be a little demanding at times. Not to spoil the ending but we left satisfied.
Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to ‘Sparrow School,’ a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.
