Based partly on Meredith Daneman's biography, MARGOT explores the life of one of the world's most beloved dancers during a critical point in her career. Anne-Marie Duff (THE VIRGIN QUEEN, SHAMELESS) plays the international ballet superstar at the age of 40, an age when many believed she would retire gracefully from dancing. Instead Margot's career and personal life were reinvigorated by her unexpected pairing with Russian dancer Rudolph Nureyev (Michiel Huisman, THE YOUNG VICTORIA). The partnership propelled Margot and Rudolph to a new, previously unseen level of fame; putting increasing strain on her marriage to Panamanian diplomat Roberto de Arias, and leading the prima ballerina assoluta to question choices made throughout her career. The beautifully sumptuous film boasts supporting performances by Sir Derek Jacobi, Lindsay Duncan, Penelope Wilton and Con O'Neill.
