The Lovers (2017)

By The Miniplex (other events)

12 Dates Through Jun 28, 2017

A refreshing, funny look at love, fidelity, and family, starring Debra Winger and Tracy Letts as a long-married and completely dispassionate husband and wife. Both are in the midst of 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 bizarre complications of "cheating" on their respective lovers. "An achingly poignant portrait of a modern marriage...Its emotional reserves are deeper and more capacious, its sense of mystery more profound, than in just about any American movie of any scale I’ve seen in recent memory." - Los Angeles Times. Rated R, 94 minutes.

"A rare romantic comedy featuring actors who resemble real people." - Washington Post.

"In Winger, a dynamo in restraint, and Letts, simmering with unexpressed feelings, Jacobs has found just the right actors to find the chaos and regret of real life. They are perfection, and you can't take your eyes off them." - Rolling Stone

"The rare film that acknowledges that romance isn’t limited to people in their 20s and 30s. It’s also a smart, quirky comedy that moviegoers of any age should find eminently appealing." - St. Louis Post-Dispatch
