Two young women sit on the floor next to each other in a gym. One of them holds a beer bottle.

About Love Lies Bleeding

BAFTA-nominated and critically acclaimed for her 2019 psychological horror Saint Maud, British director Rose Glass returns with a queer love story and thriller set in small-town America.

Kristen Stewart stars as reclusive gym manager Lou, who falls hard for Jackie (Katy O’Brian), an ambitious bodybuilder passing through town en route to pursuing her dreams in Las Vegas. But their love ignites violence, pulling them deep into the web of Lou’s criminal family – led by her father (a tanned, taciturn Ed Harris) – and threatening disaster.

With a wider ensemble cast including Jena Malone, Dave Franco and Anna Baryshnikov, Love Lies Bleeding is both a passionate romance and an electric thriller fuelled by ego, desire and the American dream.
