“Ballet fans will be richly rewarded, both by Maria Rovira's emotionally charged choreography, and the archival footage of Acosta's early pivotal performances.”~South China Morning Post

Aroview: Rousing biopic of the Cuban ballet superstar Carlos Acosta, nicknamed Yuli by his father, who saw recognised his talent for dance and sent him to National Ballet School, despite his undisciplined childhood in impoverished Havana.
