Jennifer Lawrence and Joel Edgerton on "Red Sparrow"

by Katherine Tulich February 28, 2018

Jennifer Lawrence returns to work under the helm of her Hunger Games director, Francis Lawrence, in the challenging role of a reluctant Russian operative in Red Sparrow, based on the 2013 book by ex-CIA operative Jason Matthews. Lawrence plays Dominika Egorova, a rising young Bolshoi ballerina who suffers a debilitating injury and, facing a bleak future, chooses to take the only option offered to her, entering the state-run Sparrow School, who brutally trains a new generation of ruthless sexually manipulative spies.

HFPA member Alessandra Venezia sat down with Lawrence and her co-star, Australian actor Joel Edgerton in London for this exclusive interview.
