Reclusive gym manager Lou (Kristen Stewart) falls hard for Jackie, an ambitious bodybuilder (Katy O’Brian) headed through town to Las Vegas in pursuit of her dream. But their love ignites violence, pulling them deep into the web of Lou’s criminal family.

Director Rose Glass follows up her debut SAINT MAUD with an off-the-wall, rambunctious lesbian love story that crashes into a family drama of the darkest ilk. As a small-town gym and a ravine just outside city limits become the playground for all flavors of mischief and mayhem, a heightened Americana sensibility and Glass’ deliciously distinctive, bold style create a world that is at once familiar and entirely fresh. LOVE LIES BLEEDING is somehow as sweetly romantic about loyalty as it is doggedly hedonistic. With a vaulting imagination and its roots in deeply human places, this film packs a gut punch unlike any other. (Synopsis from 2024 Sundance Film Festival Guide)

“A neo-noir plunge into the fringes of Americana, a gloriously bonkers ending, and an unapologetically burly style match Glass’s psychedelic substance on the page in an epic tale of love, crime, family, and passion. The infectious wildness of LOVE LIES BLEEDING is simply a turn-on.” —Tomris Laffly, Harper’s Bazaar

“Doesn’t have time for a slow burn. It’s a movie that comes in hot and leaves in a molten blaze of glory.” —David Fear, Rolling Stone

“It’s a scoff-it-down dollop of outrageous gourmet pulp — part William Friedkin, part Nicolas Winding Refn, but shot through with the same unique and peculiar glint of ambiguity that made SAINT MAUD such an exciting work.” —Robbie Collins, Telegraph (UK)
