Yuli (M)

Yuli movie poster

Based on the rags-to-renown international career of Cuban ballet star Carlos Acosta, and on his 2007 memoir No Way Home, it stars Acosta as himself, looking back over his career  in a story hitting every thematic note – family, sacrifice, maleness, black identity, exile and the transforming power of art.

The film follows Acosta - nicknamed Yuli by his father - from growing up on the streets of his native Cuba, through his time at the country’s National Dance School, to performing at London’s prestigious Royal Ballet.

★★★★★ "A wholly original and deeply affecting movie" - UK TIMES

★★★★ "Superstar Cuban ballet dancer Carlos Acosta takes us through his life in unusual style in a mix of drama and dance, fiction and reality." - TIME OUT

★★★★ "[Acosta's] grace, athleticism and sheer star quality make it evident why he's worth a movie of his own." - RADIO TIMES
