Mao's Last Dancer

Recently several ballet movies have entered the options of movies to see, here is another.  A deeply moving story of a man, Li Cunxin (played as an adult by Chi Chao), who was plucked out of his life by his government, trained in a profession not of his choosing, given the opportunity to travel, where his talent is refined and he discovers the backbone of courage he did not know he possessed.  Arresting music, bewitching dancing, engaging characters, exemplary dichotomy of worlds, superb.

Live on the program Interviews, Cunxin discussing his book, the movie and life experiences.
