SYNOPSIS

The Loveless will screen from a 2K digital restoration.

Kathryn Bigelow’s cool and atmospheric debut film stars a young Willem Defoe in his first leading role as Vance, an outlaw biker in a gang of drifters making their way to the races in Daytona. A small town stop leads to friction with locals and a bender of sex and violence ensues. This independent gem evokes the rebels of 1950s Americana with detached nostalgia.

M | Moderate violence, Moderate sexual references, Suicide theme
