Mao's Last Dancer

Based on professional dancer Li Cunxin's autobiography of the same name, Mao's Last Dancer is the story of a Chinese boy training in ballet in Beijing. When he goes to America as an exchange student, he begins to question his life in China and decides to marry an American dancer in order to make it possible for him to stay in the States — even if it means never being able to return to his home country.
