‘Red Sparrow’ Clip: Jennifer Lawrence Holds Something Back Depending on which critic you ask, Red Sparrow is either a surprisingly good adult drama or a slog to sit through. Either way, there’s some buzz behind the Jennifer Lawrence spy-thriller. A new Red Sparrow clip offers a dramatic-yet-subdued look at the film. This brand new Red Sparrow clip isn’t action packed. Nor is the type of scene you might expect to see in a standard spy thriller. Instead, this is a quiet, reflective moment between Jennifer Lawrence’s character and her mother (Joely Richardson).
