Stars: Dakota Johnson, Tilda Swinton, Mia Goth, Jessica Harper, Choe Grace Moretz, Doris Hick, Malgorzata Bela, Angela Winkler, Vanda Capriolo, Alex Wek, Elena Fokina | Written by David Kajganich | Directed by Luca Guadagnino

Young American dancer Susie Bannion arrives in 1970s Berlin to audition for the world-renowned Helena Markos Dance Co.
