The searing, multi award-winning new drama from Andrey Zvyagintsev ("Leviathan", "Elena", "The Return"), arguably the most fearless and vital filmmaker in modern European cinema, "Loveless" is a razor-sharp and gripping portrayal of a family – and society – on the precipice of collapse.

Boris (Alexey Rozin) and Zhenya (Maryana Spivak) live together in the same Moscow apartment, but their relationship is all but over. Caught in a spiral of slanging matches and eager to be freed into the company of new lovers, the only thing keeping them together is the still-to-be-finalised sale of their apartment. What this means for their 12-year-old son, Alyosha (Matvey Novikov), doesn’t seem to be of primary concern. But when he doesn’t return home one night, the couple are confronted by ambivalent and resource-strained authorities, and must mount their own independent search… one that forces them to confront their fears, past actions and complacency.
