So-yong Kim brings us a graceful and delicate portrait of two women, once childhood best friends, who discover a new chapter of intimacy in their 20s. Sarah, a young mom whose husband is perennially away on work, bears the weight of adult responsibility and emotional isolation. When she is reunited with the free-spirited Mindy, their chemistry teeters between platonic and romantic, and they struggle to define the hazy borders of their relationship. The deep and subtle heroines of Lovesong never cross into clichés, and are elevated by quietly stylized cinematography and a rippling, subdued score. Starring Jena Malone (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Into the Wild) and Riley Keough (Mad Max: Fury Road, Starz’s The Girlfriend Experience). Colorado Premiere. (USA, 2016)
