U.S. Trailer for Andrey Zvyagintsev’s Award-Winning ‘Loveless’

Russia’s Oscar Contender

Sony Pictures Classics has revealed an official U.S. trailer for Leviathan director Andrey Zvyagintsev’s new film Loveless (Нелюбовь).

Set in Moscow in the autumn of 2012, the picture tells the story of a bitter divorce and its tragic effects on a young boy. But it is something larger than the charred ashes of one dead marriage. Maryana Spivak, Alexei Rozin, Varvara Shmykova, Matvey Novikov, Daria Pisareva, and Yanina Hope star.

The film won the Jury Prize at Cannes earlier this year and was nominated for a Golden Globe award. This tense drama is also Russia’s foreign-language film Oscar submission.

In LOVELESS, Zhenya and Boris are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and recriminations. Already embarking on new lives, each with a new partner, they are impatient to start again, to turn the page – even if it means threatening to abandon their 12-year-old son Alyosha. Until, after witnessing one of their fights, Alyosha disappears.
