Mao's Last Dancer

I saw the opening of Bruce Beresford's film Mao's Last Dancer at the Toronto International Film Festival last night. Beresford was in attendance for a Q&A, as were several of the actors including Chi Cao of Birmingham Royal Ballet who starred as Li Cunxin in the title role. The film was received enthusiastically by the sellout crowd, who became instant fans of Chi Cao's when they saw his virtuosity in a dazzling Don Quixote pas de deux. Other choreography in the film was by Australian Graeme Murphy, including an unusual Swan Lake.
