Runtime: 85 mins

Genre: Drama/Mystery

Part of the Cinema in the City season

Robert Machoian’s terse, Utah-set drama explores the anguish of a couple whose relationship has disintegrated, but with only one of them wanting out.

Played out in long takes, amidst a landscape that dwarfs its residents, The Killing of Two Lovers, like Xavier Legrande’s impressive Custody, skilfully maps out the complex terrain of a marriage in freefall, holding off judgement of characters’ actions until we are fully immersed in their lives. ★★★★ “This is a compelling portrait of a toxic marriage.” - The Guardian

Language: English
