When pregnant housewife Edie Canody learns her father-in-law has passed away, she and her husband Benjamin return to a disquieting small town of Loves Park for the funeral. Edie is surprised when Benjamin mysteriously decides to stay and run his family’s business. Edie’s behavior soon becomes increasingly erratic and bizarre as more time spent in Loves Park eerily seems to be drawn out against her wishes.
Genre: Drama Running Time: 101 minutes
For “Loves Park” I was more interested in mood and atmosphere than plot and information. Veering away from traditional narratives, I was drawn to explore more of the unconscious, surreal and symbolic language of dreams.
Some years ago I felt a lot of pressure to have children. While I was never pregnant, I felt as though I was having an out-of-body experience. It was strange this loss of identity, and I believe the film reflects some of those feelings. – Dir. Carol Rhyu
