Drafted against her will to become a ‘sparrow’, in this exclusive clip we see the dilemma Jennifer Lawrence’s Dominika faces as she learns that her ‘body now belongs to the state’.
‘You must learn to sacrifice for a higher purpose, to push yourself beyond all limitation, and forget the sentimental morality with which you were raised,’ Charlotte Rampling’s Headmistress of Sparrow School.
Red Sparrow follows Dominika as she becomes the strongest Sparrow the program has, but as she struggles to maintain her sense of self during the dehumanizing training process, she soon meets a CIA officer who handles the agency’s most sensitive infiltration of Russian intelligence.
The two young operatives fall into a spiral of attraction and deception, which threatens their careers, allegiances and the security of both countries.
Red Sparrow is out in the UK on 1 March.
