White Nights is a 1985 American drama film directed by Taylor Hackford and starring Mikhail Baryshnikov, Gregory Hines, Jerzy Skolimowski, Helen Mirren and Isabella Rossellini. It was choreographed by Twyla Tharp and shot in Finland, Portugal, Austria, as well as in the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union. The title refers to the sunlit summer nights of Leningrad, the setting for the majority of the film, situated near the Arctic Circle.
The film is notable both for the dancing of Hines and Baryshnikov and for the Academy Award?winning song "Say You, Say Me" by Lionel Richie in 1986, as well as "Separate Lives" performed by Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin and written by Stephen Bishop (also nominated).
Taylor Hackford met his future wife, Academy Award?winning actress Helen Mirren, during the filming of White Nights.
