The Lovers Description

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.

While spending summer with his mother, Haru meets Ren, a boy newly adopted by his mother. Getting along with Ren isn't easy as Haru's goal is to "civilize" him by the time summer ends. Their relationship slowly improves as Haru spends more time with Ren and in return Ren steadily warms up to him. Can they really become a "family" at the end of summer!?

The Lovers Movie Reviews

  • This is a comedy?

    Very difficult to cheer on a couple so completely self centered and hurtful. I did not like this movie at all but finished it to see how this mess would end and found the ending sad and not funny. The expression on Debra Winger's face throughout the movie was annoying.
  • So Good!

    Wish all outcomes were like this. The whole storyline was exceptional! You don't know what you have until it's either gone or until it reawakens
  • Disappointing

    Irene the healthy
    The story seemed so interesting and it started so well until it reached a point of destruction with bad text, bad acting and bad directing that ruined the potential of this entire film. So disappointing because the idea and the cast were great.
  • Mediocre

    All mediocre, including acting, feelings and life. If this is the message it went through. The son needs to see a shrink, reactions way out of line.
  • Poor Direction, writing and editing

    Wanted to like this film given the cast and plot...however, the pacing was unnecessarily slow, the direction was seemingly non existent and the writing missed a lot of opportunity. Could not finish this movie:(
  • Interesting but not compelling

    Its great seeing Debra Winger again but I the writing left me unconvinced that their relationship had ever had any depth to it. The score was horrible - like it belonged to another movie. It tried to give a lightness to an unsettling scenario but just irritated. But good performances all around.
  • Acting good... boring story

    Can't believe I've sat through this whole film. It was only the acting that kept me interested. The story was a big bore
  • Glad to see Debra Winger again

    Awe Heal
    That said, I was not convinced by the cast. It's a movie about infidelity, betrayal, anger and new love. This dysfunctional (which, these days, means "normal") family has swept so many years of crap under the carpet that by the time the son is college aged, there is nothing left but confusion & anger. So, it's kind of a Debbie (Winger) Downer movie for me.
