“Jacobs has delivered a two-handed character study and, in this mission, he is handily assisted by his two powerful leads.” - Ryan Porter, Toronto Star
“The Lovers keeps folding, changing and evolving, but stays to its central theme, exploring two uncomfortably real characters who can’t get out of the way of each other or themselves.” - Adam Graham, Detroit News

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 complications of “cheating” on their respective lovers.
