"A couple goes looking for their missing son and exposes the corrupt soul of Putin-era Russian in an Oscar-nominated stunner that means to shake you and does." - Rolling Stone

Oscar-nominated: Best Foreign Language Film “With his devastating, finely layered new drama Loveless (Nelyubov), Russian director Andrey Zvyagintsev (Leviathan) once again demonstrates his remarkable gift for creating perfectly formed dramatic microcosms that illustrate the bred-in-the-bone pathologies of Russian society.

“In a suburb of Moscow, the marriage between Zhenya (Maryana Spivak) and Boris (Alexey Rozin) is in its death throes. They’re long past arguing over where it all went wrong. Now they’re onto getting the divorce finalized, selling their jointly owned apartment and looking forward to new lives with new partners

“The only pesky, completely unresolved matter is what will they do with Alyosha (Matvey Novikov), their 12-year-old son. Neither of them wants custody of him. Indeed, Zhenya argues for sending him off to boarding school for the rest of his youth before he joins the army, and notes how she’s never loved him, just as she never loved Boris. In one wrenching shot, it’s revealed that poor Alyosha, weeping behind a door, has heard all of this and more.

“Zvyagintsev maintains the exacting technical standards for which he’s known. His cast, the leads little known outside Russia, submit equally outstanding performances that build beautifully to a harrowing emotional climax.” Hollywood Reporter
