The Lovers

"Here is a neat, little slow burn of a comedy that upends the cheating-spouse narrative; even its title is cheekily misleading." - New York Post

“The course of true love never did run smooth, especially when your 30-year marriage is on the rocks and rising tensions have led both of you to extramarital affairs. For proof, see The Lovers, an acrid satire about marital resignation, desperation and boredom in late middle age.

“The chemistry of romance between Mary (Debra Winger) and Michael (celebrated playwright Tracy Letts) lost its fizz long ago. The tone is set from the opening moments, as the scheming couple deal separately with their hush-hush partners on the side, then with each other.

“Writer/director Azazel Jacobs sets up a moody sensibility. He chooses things carefully. From the bland beige emptiness of the home and look-alike work offices that his characters occupy to the smoothly composed serenading-strings soundtrack to the inspired casting, he keeps the laughs from feeling cheap.” - Minneapolis Star Tribune
