A Gentle Creature trailer: One woman against the world

The first UK trailer for the Palme d'Or nominated A Gentle Creature has not long been released by Arrow Films and you can check it out above.

It follows a woman who lives alone on the outskirts of a village in Russia, one day she receives a parcel she sent to her incarcerated husband, marked 'return to sender'. Shocked and confused, the woman has no choice but to travel to the prison in a remote region of the country, in search of an explanation.

There begins the story of a battle against this impenetrable fortress, the prison where the forces of social evil are constantly at work. Braving violence and humiliation, in the face of all opposition, our protagonist embarks on a blind quest for justice.

Ukrainian v director Sergei Loznitsa (My Joy, In The Fog) is in the directors chair with a cast featuring Vasilina Makovtseva, Liya Akhedzhakova and Valeriu Andriutã.

A Gentle Creature comes to UK cinemas on April 13th.
