Movie Info

The Lovers is 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 serious 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 hilarious complications of "cheating" on their respective lovers. A mixture of humor and powerful emotion, the story is a uniquely honest take on modern marriage.


Critic Reviews for The Lovers

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

"The Lovers" is a comedy of Middle American doldrums that leaves you rooting for its characters instead of smirking at them.

That rare thing: a serious romantic comedy with farcical elements that never puts a foot wrong.

It's a hell of a role for Winger, her first lead for more than 20 years, and it acts as not only a showcase for her considerable talents but a reminder why women of her age deserve more screen time and respect.
