The disappearance of a soon-to-be-divorced couple’s son is the catalyst for internationally acclaimed Russian film-maker Andrey Zvyagintsev’s latest state-of-the-nation feature after the award-winning Leviathan in 2014. Those familiar with any of the director’s previous credits – which include The Return (2003) and Elena (2011) – will know to expect cutting social commentary, impeccable direction and striking characterization in another masterful vision of contemporary Russian life from one of world cinema’s foremost directors.

When twelve-year-old Alyosha (Matvey Novikov) goes missing after school one day, his parents, Zhenya and Boris must put aside their mutual loathing and acrimonious divorce proceedings in order to help find their missing child. Wrapped up in their own individual concerns, Zhenya and Boris are unprepared for the time-consuming and emotionally fraught task ahead of them. With a screenplay by the director’s regular collaborator, Oleg Negin, Zvyagintsev’s Loveless, winner of the Jury Prize at this year’s Cannes and Best Film at the London Film Festival, is not to be missed.
