Love Lies Bleeding


Jackie is determined to make it as a bodybuilder and is heading to Las Vegas to take part in a competition. On her way, she passes through a small town in New Mexico where she meets Lou, the reclusive manager of the local gym. Lou’s father is an arms dealer and holds the reins of a crime syndicate. Jackie and Lou fall in love. But their relationship provokes violence and the two become deeply entangled in the machinations of Lou’s family.
Love Lies Bleeding is Rose Glass’s second film following the successful Saint Maud. At once dreamy and nightmarish, it tells of love, revenge and the magic of the endless, lonely desert roads in the US.
