Two Lovers


Two Lovers
This romantic drama is set amongst the Jewish community in New York. A troubled young man is being encouraged to marry the daughter of old family friends, especially since said friends are about to buy his family's business, and it would be wise to ''marry their fortunes together.'' However he finds his vivacious new neighbour much more interesting, even overlooking her drug habit and extra-marital affair. As his family looks on disapprovingly, he is swept up on the winds of romance.

110 minutes.

Ray Greene quote iconTwo Lovers is not only Gray’s most accessible film but easily his best shot at finding himself a discerning American audience, if such a beast exists anymore.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconTwo Lovers is anything but traditional, romantic or a comedy. It is a film of unusual perception, played at perfect pitch by Phoenix, Shaw, Paltrow and the other actors. It is calm and mature.
