Trivia Red Sparrow

The film is based on a 2013 novel of the same name by retired CIA operative Jason Matthews. Before the novel was even finished, Matthews sold the film rights for a seven figure sum. The novel is the first book in a trilogy. To prepare for the role, Jennifer Lawrence did ballet and practiced a Russian accent for four months. Lawrence told she spent three hours a day for four months working with the Hollywood ballet instructor Kurt Froman. She said it was difficult because she had never wanted to dance ballet. American ballet dancer Isabella Boylston was Jennifer Lawrence's dance double in the movie.
