In 1989, bodybuilder Jackie (Katie O’Brian) makes her way towards Las Vegas with big dreams and even bigger muscles. Jackie catches the eye of reclusive gym manager Lou (Kristen Stewart), and as their relationship develops the two find themselves falling fast and hard for each other. Supplied a job by Lou’s gun-running father (MIFF Midlife Achievement Award winner Ed Harris) and grimy brother-in-law JJ (Dave Franco), Jackie is quickly entangled in a deep web of crime and violence, and the only way to protect her love is to fight back–and fight back she does. A smash hit at Sundance 2024, Love Lies Bleeding is an adrenaline-fueled, steroid-pumping film that’s “unabashedly queer and winningly deranged”– “It’s a brutal, bloody, and discombobulating ride, but boy, is it a blast”–Entertainment Weekly.
