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.
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.
Sixty two year old Debra Winger, nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for the movies An Officer And A Gentleman (1982), Terms Of Endearment (1983) and Shadowlands (1993) – and one of the biggest movie stars of the 1980s, with Terms Of Endearment, An Officer And A Gentleman, Urban Cowboy, Legal Eagles and Black Widow – makes a return to the big screen in a starring role after a more than two decade hiatus.
