The Lovers

R, 94 minutes

Debra Winger and Tracy Letts star as a long-married and dispassionate husband and wife, both are in the midst of serious affairs, and increasingly committed to their new partners. Just as they are on the brink of calling it quits, a spark between them suddenly reignites, leading them into an impulsive romance that forces them to navigate the hilarious complications of “cheating” on their respective lovers. Through a blend of humor and powerful emotion, THE LOVERS provides a refreshing, uniquely honest take on modern marriage. (2017, Azazel Jacobs, 94 min, R, DCP)

“Letts and Winger are marvelous here: Both know how to express vulnerability without succumbing to self-pity or self-righteous victimhood. THE LOVERS is also bracingly forthright about sex—not just in terms of talking about it, but in showing it—and both Letts and Winger are wholly comfortable in their skin, even in the semi-buff.” -Time

“The wisdom of this meticulously crafted film is in its genuine irony, which amplifies steadily throughout until culminating in a moment of real heartbreak that, ironically enough, only sets the stage for a cycle of deceit to begin again.”
