‘An intelligent, thoughtful biopic.’
Loïe Fuller danced, loved and burned.
From humble beginnings in the American Midwest to the toast of decadent Paris, dancer Loïe Fuller was driven by a singular passion for her art. Her ‘Serpentine Dance’ was a whirlwind of silk and coloured lights – a dazzling new style for modern, sensual times. Fuller’s fierce dedication makes her vulnerable to self-destruction and blind to rivalry; as her candle burns, a beautiful and talented protégé waits to steal the limelight. The Dancer brings early 1900s Parisian society vibrantly to life, with searing performances from Soko and Lily-Rose Depp lighting up this tale of creation and abandon.
