West Coast Premiere! The last Tsar falls in love with a ballerina and must choose between duty to his country and to his heart. A passion that could rewrite Russian history.  
Sumptuously shot with careful attention to detail, this period drama by the Golden Globe-nominated Russian director Aleksei Uchitel recounts the well-documented love affair between Russia’s last tsar, Nicholas II (Eidinger)—as a still unmarried crown prince—and Mathilda-Marie Feliksovna Kschessinskaya (Olszanska), a beautiful young prima ballerina of St. Petersburg’s world-renowned Mariinski Theater. Set in the twilight of the Russian Empire, Uchitel attempts to capture the magnitude of the scandal that ensued as the danseuse danced her way not only into the hearts of theater audiences, but into the heart of the future Russian Tsar. 
And the film has not been immune to scandal itself... Even before the scheduled release date in October 2017, “Mathilde” and Mr. Uchitel found themselves at the center of violent controversy when the conservative Russian Orthodox Christian community rejected as offensive the film’s sensuous portrayal of the young tsar, who was canonized as an Orthodox saint in 2000.
