Elena
Елена

Andrei Zvyagintsev’s third feature, nominated for over 45 awards, follows the eponymous Elena, at once the docile housewife to successful businessman Vladimir and the humble matriarch to her son’s impoverished family, living in a decrepit suburb of Moscow’s outer city limits. This unflinching critique of modern-day inequality is imbued with the director’s signature style, and set to Philip Glass’s enthralling score, Elena is a gripping take on the classic noir thriller.
