THE LOVERS

Directed by Azazel Jacobs
FEATURE NARRATIVE 98 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE LOVERS
Many years into their dispassionate marriage, a long-married couple — both seriously involved with other people — has settled into an independent yet friendly arrangement. But pressure is mounting from their respective partners to fully commit, so Mary (a luminous Debra Winger) and Michael (Broadway legend Tracy Letts) amicably resolve to call it quits.

To their surprise, their decision to separate reignites a dormant spark, which leads to an impulsive and passionate affair. Their newfound affection forces them to navigate the uncharted terrain and hilarious complications that come with "cheating" on their respective lovers. Things become even more complicated when their son arrives home for a visit with his new girlfriend.

In The Lovers, writer-director Azazel Jacobs (Terri) mixes an almost farcical sense of humor with emotional honesty. The result is a refreshingly authentic take on modern marriage.
