The movie is now opening in more markets:

The movie is opening in some theaters in Canada today (edited on Friday, May 14):
http://www.thestar.com/entertainment/mo ... -li-cunxin

There will be a limited release in the US: August 6, 2010 via Samuel Goldwyn Films
Interestingly, the film will be (at least in part) distributed by Dave Matthew's film company, ATO Pictures

Germany: September 30, 2010
Singapore: April 22, 2010

It also appears that Celluloid Dreams, a French production & sales company, is showing the film in the Market part of Cannes this year (which I think is not part of the formal festival, but a place where companies can come to see films looking for distributors.)

I have apparently seen this movie last week and really appreciated the work of this film.
This is the story of a Chinese ballet dancer whose special talent is only matched by his courage and determination to live in freedom.

I will be interested to see how this movie goes over with a more general public - rather than those like me who grew up knowing Li's story even before the book came out. From the bits and pieces I picked up, it seemed to attract the general audience and people were very moved by the story - I was far from the only one crying by the end. I really think Mao's Last Dancer has the potential to be a movie that brings regular people to ballet - it goes so far beyond ballet, doesn't trying to force the ballet at the audience, and is about real people, real places and real sacrifice
