The film is based on a 2013 novel of the same name by Jason Matthews, and revolves around a Russian woman (Lawrence) who is forced into the life of a "Sparrow", which essentially appears to be a secret agent/sleeper agent designed for exactly the kinds of missions you'd expect to involve a handsome young woman: Seducing generals, attending swanky soirees, occasional assassinations.
Despite drawing instant comparisons to Black Widow and last year's Atomic Blonde, Red Sparrow is its own demon.
As always, it's a pleasure to see Jennifer Lawrence on screen and Red Sparrow will certainly be no different, however the script will turn out. She is put into a no-win scenario where she must either accept training to become a Sparrow, or she will die. A devoted daughter determined to protect her mother at all costs.
In the trailer, Lawrence's Dominika Egorova is sent to sparrow school, a secret intelligence service that trains young adults to use their bodies and minds as tactics.
The film also stars Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, Ciaran Hinds, Joely Richardson and Jeremy Irons.
Dominika endures a perverse and sadistic training process, and emerges as the most risky, seductive and manipulative Sparrow the program has ever produced. Then she finds herself in a life-threatening situation where she must call upon all she has learned.
Lawrence is a talented actress who can pull off a Russian accent, to an extent, but it seems like this role will demand more internality from her - something she's struggled with recently in Darren Aronofsky'smother! I just thought, 'I'll never do that again.
