The Dancer Upstairs - Movie Release & Trailer

The Dancer Upstairs
Latin American Drama in John Malkovich’s feature film directorial debut

As a Latin American nation nears collapse under a highly organized terrorist movement, idealistic policeman Agustin Rejas (Javier Bardem) faces the greatest challenge of his career: to catch the mysterious guerilla leader Ezequiel. The brains behind the bloody revolution that threatens to bring the government and entire country down, Ezequiel is as elusive as Rejas’ superiors are corrupt - an irony not lost on Rejas, who left a career as a lawyer to try to find “a more honorable way of practicing the law.” The military’s response to the brutal tactics of Ezequiel’s followers is equally ferocious, creating an atmosphere of mass panic.

In the midst of the chaos, Rejas finds respite in Yolanda (Laura Morante), his daughter’s soulfully beautiful ballet teacher. But she, who appears to be a shelter from the storm, may in actuality be the storm’s eye. As Rejas draws nearer to the man who considers himself to be the “Fourth Flame of Communism,” he and the dancer he loves will be forced to choose between love, country and self.

Based on Nicholas Shakespeare’s adaptation of his novel of the same name, THE DANCER UPSTAIRS marks John Malkovich’s feature film directorial debut and stars Academy Awarded-nominated actor Javier Bardem (BEFORE NIGHT FALLS) and acclaimed actress Laura Morante (THE SON’S ROOM).
