Based on the book by former CIA officer Jason Matthews, “Red Sparrow” reunites Jennifer Lawrence with her “Hunger Games” director, Francis Lawrence as well as a great supporting cast that includes Jeremy Irons & Charlotte Rampling.
It’s nothing like what we would expect to see Jennifer in. It’s a spy thriller looking at Russia training good looking girls to do whatever is needed to get information, or kill to get ahead.
Dominika Egorova is drafted against her will to become a “sparrow,” a trained seductress in the Russian security service. Dominika learns to use her body as a weapon, but struggles to maintain her sense of self during the dehumanizing training process. Finding her power in an unfair system, she emerges as one of the program’s strongest assets. Her first target is Nate Nash, a CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive infiltration of Russian intelligence. The two young operatives fall into a spiral of attraction and deception, which threatens their careers, allegiances and the security of both countries.
