Zhenya (Maryana Spivak) and Boris (Aleksey Rozin) are going through a vicious divorce marked by resentment, frustration and recriminations. 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 (Matvey Novikov). Until, after witnessing one of their fights, Alyosha disappears, and these estranged parents must find common ground once again.
Leviathan director Andrey Zvyagintsev returns with this subtly devastating drama, which won the Jury Prize at Cannes and Best Film at BFI London Film Festival.
This special preview screening on Sunday 4 February will be followed by a Q&A with Andrey Zvyagintsev and the film's producer.
