Is it possible to give love if one has received little? How selfish can a person be in pursuit of happiness? Can the most horrific mistakes be forgiven? These are some of the questions one must grapple with while watching Loveless. Director Andrey Zvyagintsev discusses his film with associate curator La Frances Hui in this live Q&A at The Museum of Modern Art. Translated by Maria Rabinovich.
A beautiful, affluent home in Moscow offers everything a family needs, but what if there is no love? When their child suddenly disappears, a divorcing couple must overcome their bitter acrimony to search for the missing boy. This harrowing tale, which unfolds like a thriller punctuated by a pounding and somber musical score, looks at modern life with a piercing gaze. Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival. A Sony Pictures Classics film.
