Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.
A young Russian intelligence officer is assigned to seduce a first-tour CIA agent who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young officers collide in a charged atmosphere of trade-craft, deception, and inevitably forbidden passion that threatens not just their lives but the lives of others as well.

Dominika suffers a broken left leg and has to use a cane to support herself. She is shown holding the cane with her left hand. This is not the correct way to support oneself if the left leg or foot is injured; she should use her right hand to hold the cane, thereby easing the pressure off the injured limb. Conversely, if her right leg or foot were injured, she should hold the cane using her left hand. When one walks, one's left hand and right foot swing forward, and then the right hand and left foot follow suit alternately. So, with her left leg injured, her right hand should hold the cane to help support the left leg. See more »
I think Dominika has had her chance. It is my opinion she has developed feelings for the American. She made a fool of you , Ivan .

The Indian theatrical release received an A certificate after some cuts in violence, language and sexual content were made. Frontal/back nudity was completely removed along with some killings getting reduced by 50% and liquor labels being blurred. An anti-smoking disclaimer was also displayed. This version is 142 minutes long. See more »
This is a beautiful film ridden with Post Cold War era psychological warfare and intelligence services doubling down. So prepare for brutality and violence. On the flip side we have Jennifer Lawrence a beautiful maiden playing a Russian who deploys her feminine wiles to fabulous effect.
Lovers of sexy and engaging women, exposing Russians' immoral habits and excuses and super powers fighting it out: here is a film for all of you (us).
The answer: both
