Carlos Acosta, director Icíar Bollaín and writer Paul Laverty will be in attendance at the screening on Sat 23 Feb.

The dazzling, rags-to-riches life of ballet superstar Carlos Acosta is beautifully captured by director Icíar Bollaín and writer Paul Laverty in this life-affirming adaptation of his memoir No Way Home. In modern Cuba, Acosta is rehearsing a show dramatising his life in dance. That’s the prompt to recall a childhood where the irrepressible young Carlos would rather have been playing football than attending the Cuban School of Ballet. The struggles to overcome poverty and make his family proud lie at the heart of an inspirational story as vibrant and entrancing as the Cuban locations.
