Spain/Cuba 2018, 115 mins. Dir. Iciar Bollain.
Starring Edilson Manuel Olbera Nunez, Keyvin Martinez, Santiago Alfonso and Carlos Acosta
Adapted from his autobiography, this vibrant, emotionally-intelligent biopic chronicles the rise of Carlos Acosta – nicknamed Yuli or ‘warrior’ by his father – from impoverished tearaway growing up in Castro’s Havana, to world-renowned ballet star. Edilson Manuel Olbera Nunez, who plays the young Carlos, is a true delight, while the present-day dance sequences choreographed by Acosta, who features in the film as his adult self, are breathtaking.
