Mary (Debra Winger) and Michael (Tracy Letts) are a married couple. They live together, but are estranged from one another. They are both having long-standing extramarital affairs-she with Robert (Aidan Gillen) and he with Lucy (Melora Walters).

Hey, let's do something.
We're about to. First, I'm gonna do you and then, you're gonna do me.
No, let's do something we've never done before. Let's do something normal like go to the mall, or go see a movie. Something date-y. Then, we can do each other.

This film tells the story of a married couple, who stopped loving each other. They respectively have affairs, and both plan to leave their spouse. They go through much soul searching when their son comes back home for a few days.
"The Lovers" is a story that people can relate to. What is particularly interesting is that they both have affairs, and both are pressurised by their lovers to leave their family. Their struggles are well portrayed, and it is not easy to make their decisions because deep down there is still a spark lurking somewhere. I liked watching "The Lovers", and the ending is particularly satisfying.
