TWO LOVERS
2008, Magnolia Pictures, 108 min, USA, Dir: James Gray

Director James Gray reunites with Joaquin Phoenix (star of the director's THE YARDS and WE OWN THE NIGHT) for a romantic drama about the impetuousness of desire vs. the comfort of love. Phoenix plays Leonard, an emotionally wounded man torn between two women: Michelle (Gwyneth Paltrow), a mysterious and beautiful neighbor, and Sandra, the lovely and caring daughter of a businessman who is buying out his family's dry-cleaning business. Leonard becomes deeply infatuated with Michelle at the same time that mounting pressure from his family pushes him toward committing to Sandra, forcing him into an impossible decision. With Vinessa Shaw, Isabella Rossellini, John Ortiz and Moni Moshonov.
