Loveless, 28 September 2018
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. – Rotten Tomatoes

It means to shake you. And it does. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone. Full review
Unfolding beneath skies the color and density of damp concrete, Loveless uses a toxic marriage to paint a larger portrait of decay, dereliction and moral detachment. – Jeanette Catsoulis, The NYTimes. Full review
