New York, NY (March 29, 2010) - Samuel Goldwyn Films announced today that it has acquired all U.S. rights to MAO’S LAST DANCER.
The company plans to release the film on August 6, 2010.
MAO’S LAST DANCER is the inspirational true story of dancer Li Cunxin and his extraordinary journey from poverty to international stardom. Based on the best selling autobiography, MAO'S LAST DANCER is a moving story about the quest for freedom and the courage it takes to live your own life. The film beautifully captures the struggle and triumph, as well as the intoxicating effects of first love and celebrity amid the pain of exile.
= Mixed feelings.
Glad it's finally coming out in a theatre here, pissed I have to wait a full year after my Aussie friends to see it.
