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.

"Azazel Jacobs's film takes some shrewd steps to update the comedy of remarriage for the age of the smartphone."
Christopher Gray - SLANT MAGAZINE

"Jacobs lets casually observed details and offhand humor advance the story. There are no grand pronouncements in The Lovers, which smartly communicates its ideas about relationships during its long stretches of silence."
Melissa Anderson - VILLAGE VOICE

"Writer-director Azazel Jacobs finds buoyant comedy and touching gravity in the ashes of a relationship. Above all, give yourself over Winger and Letts-they are perfection."
Peter Travers - ROLLING STONE

"Here is a neat, little slow burn of a comedy that upends the cheating-spouse narrative; even its title is cheekily misleading."
Sara Stewart - NEW YORK TIMES
