The Lovers is a refreshing, funny look at love, fidelity, and family, starring three-time Academy Award-nominee Debra Winger (Terms of Endearment) and two-time Tony Award-winner Tracy Letts (The Big Short) as a long-married and completely dispassionate husband and wife.
“The Lovers is that rare thing: a serious romantic comedy that never puts a foot wrong.” – Dan Callahan, The Wrap
Both are in the midst of serious affairs and are increasingly committed to their new partners. But on the brink of officially calling it quits, a spark between them suddenly and unexpectedly reignites, leading them into an impulsive romance that forces them to navigate the hilarious complications of “cheating” on their respective lovers. A mixture of humor and powerful emotion, the story is a uniquely honest take on modern marriage. Also starring Aidan Gillien (Game of Thrones), Eric Satterberg (Ray Donovan) and Melora Walters (Magnolia). (Dir. by Azazel Jacobs, 2016, USA, 94 mins., Rated R)
