FROM THE DIRECTOR OF LEVIATHANWinner of Cannes’ Un Certain Regard Special  Jury Prize, Elena is a gripping, modern twist on the classic noir thriller. Sixty-ish spouses Vladimir and Elena uneasily share his palatial Moscow apartment—he’s a still-virile, wealthy businessman; she’s his former nurse who has “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 (director of the Golden Globe winning and Academy Award®-nominated Leviathan) and featuring gorgeous widescreen cinematography by Mikhail Krichman and evocative, Hitchcockian music by Philip Glass, Elena is a subtly stylish exploration of crime, punishment and human nature.

“SPELLBINDING!...Impeccably crafted... framed in elegant widescreen compositions that simmer with violence.” –Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
