Ballerina Dominika Egorova is recruited to 'Sparrow School,' a Russian intelligence service where she is forced to use her body as a weapon. Her first mission, targeting a C.I.A. agent, threatens to unravel the security of both nations.
The plot is similar to the TV movie Secret Weapons (1985), made during the Cold War era. Linda Hamilton played the 'Dominika Egorova' character and Sally Kellerman played the 'Matron' character. Several scenes at the school are very similar.

RED SPARROW takes place in 2017. The eight computer 3.5-inch floppy disks, containing the stolen sensitive material, and each 3.5-inch floppy disks holds a tiny 1.44 MB of data, were obsolete well before 2011. Long before 2011, all brands of laptops no longer had an internal disc drive to read them, as Dominika Egorovaw did in the London hotel room. Sony was the last manufacturer of computer 3.5-inch floppy disks, and while Sony sold more than 12 million of them in 2009, due to dwindling demand, Sony discontinued all production of 3.5-inch floppy disks as of March 2011.
The title doesn't appear until the 10-minute mark.
