August 31: Mao’s Last Dancer (2010)
Discussant: Ed EmanuEl

Directed by Bruce Beresford, Mao’s Last Dancer is the inspiring true story of Li Cunxin and his extraordinary journey from a poor upbringing in rural China to international stardom as a world-class ballet dancer. Based on the best selling autobiography, the film weaves a moving tale about the quest for freedom and the courage it takes to live your own life. The film compellingly captures the struggles, sacrifices and triumphs, as well as the intoxicating effects of first love and celebrity amid the pain of exile. In English and Mandarin (with English subtitles), 117 minutes.
