About the film:
Winner of Cannes' Un Certain Regard Special Jury Prize and Grand Prize for Best Film at Ghent Film Festival, ELENA is a gripping, modern twist on the classic noir thriller. Sixty-ish spouses Vladimir (Andrey Smirnov) and Elena (Nadezhda Markina - winner of Best Actress Award at Festival Nouveau Cinema Montreal; Seville and Durban film festivals, and Best Actress Nominee at the European Film Awards) uneasily share his palatial Moscow apartment—he's a still-virile, wealthy businessman; she's his dowdy former nurse who has clearly “married up.” Estranged from his own wild-child daughter, Vladimir openly despises his wife's freeloading son and family. But when a sudden illness and an unexpected reunion threaten the dutiful housewife's potential inheritance, she must hatch a desperate plan…

Masterfully crafted by award-winning Russian filmmaker Andrey Zvyagintsev (Golden Globe nominee "The Return") and featuring evocative, Hitchcockian music by Philip Glass, ELENA is a subtly stylish exploration of crime, punishment and human nature.
