The Lovers stars Debra Winger and Tracy Letts as a long-married, dispassionate couple, each embroiled in an extramarital affair. But on the brink of calling it quits, a spark between them suddenly reignites, leading them into an impulsive romance.
Written and directed by Azazel Jacobs, The Lovers is a rare cinematic piece that perfectly balances comedy and drama. It offers a clever and unexpected view inside a marriage that will likely hit home with anyone who has been married. The movie ingeniously uses familiar relationships and situations between married couples to point out things that viewers may never have noticed about human behavior and the way people love each other.
