Release date change for ELENA (New Wave Films)

The release date for New Wave Films’ ELENA has been recently changed to 26th of October. The film, directed by Andrei Zvyagintsev (‘The Return’, ‘The Banishment’), is a winner of 2011 Special Jury Prize of the 2011 Cannes Film Festival and features music by Philip Glass.
Elena and Vladimir come from very different backgrounds. Vladimir is a wealthy, cold man, while Elena comes from a modest background, serving as his docile wife. The two of them have met late in life, each with a child from a previous marriage.
Vladimir has a distant relationship with his daughter. In contrast, Elena desperately tries to save her alcoholic son and his family from poverty with means she alone could not provide. When her husband Vladimir has a heart attack, he suddenly realizes his time on earth is limited. A tender but brief reunion with his daughter leads him to name her as the sole heir to his fortune.
When Vladimir announces this change to Elena, her hope to help her son quickly vanishes. Submissive housewife Elena then comes up with a plan to provide her son and his family with a real change in life.

"Terrific…Tense, edge-of-the-seat stuff.”
Peter Bradshaw (Jury), Cannes Film Festival, Un Certain Regard
