Film No. 60 (2017) August 21st. 6.30 PM LUNA Paradiso, Northbridge.
"I can't stop thinking about you. Any chance we can find some time during the day?" (Michael sneaks a call in to wife Mary after their isolated night of passion).
Debra Winger (Mary) plays out the reality of marriage 35 years after being swept off her feet in the fairy tale that was An Officer and a Gentleman. Mary and Michael (Tracy Letts) are married and live a life of lies under the same roof. Both have lovers unbeknownst to each other and time is ticking as the relevant partners have become impatient for commitment from our central characters. Dialogue driven with tension and humour we are drawn into the lives of these emotionally tired characters; then suddenly there is a catch. The Lovers is a stylish comment on relationships, baby boomers and life that passes us by before we know it. 9GUMS.
