Love Lies Bleeding

Love Lies Bleeding

8:45pm - Wednesday, May 22, 2024

From British director Rose Glass (whose 2019 feature film debut, the psychological horror thriller SAINT MAUD, was criminally underseen) comes an electric new love story, LOVE LIES BLEEDING. The film follows reclusive gym manager Lou, who falls hard for Jackie, an ambitious bodybuilder headed through town to Vegas in pursuit of her dream. But their love ignites violence, pulling them deep into the web of Lou's criminal family. With Kristen Stewart, Ed Harris, Katy O'Brien.

"The point really isn’t the crime. Or the bleeding, Or even, despite the palpable chemistry between Stewart and O’Brian, the love. It’s the intimate, passionately intense feel of the thing: the urgent need to escape where you are, and find someplace new." (Time Out)

"Visceral and heady, this is a blood-soaked, all-American fable that’s as if Thelma And Louise literally went on steroids. Rose Glass is a force to be reckoned with." (Empire Magazine)

"Lust and violence collide to powerfully pulpy effect in Love Lies Bleeding, a well-acted addition to writer-director Rose Glass' growing body of exceptional work." (Rotten Tomatoes)

"... Puts a sapphic spin on neo-noir, flirting with clichés only to dodge away towards something more outrageous." (Gay City News)
