5 Movie Clips from TWO LOVERS

     February 8, 2009

Written by David Lane

Opening this Friday in both Los Angeles and New York is director James Gray’s new movie “Two Lovers”. The film stars Joaquin Phoenix, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Vinessa Shaw as three people whose lives are intertwined by love.

Joaquin Phoenix plays Leonard, a charismatic but troubled young man who moves back into his childhood home following a recent heartbreak. While recovering under the watchful eye of his parents (Isabella Rossellini and Moni Monoshov), Leonard meets two women in quick succession: Michelle (Gwyneth Paltrow), a mysterious and beautiful neighbor who is exotic and out-of-place in Leonard’s staid world, and Sandra, the lovely and caring daughter of a businessman who is buying out his family’s dry-cleaning business.

Leonard becomes deeply infatuated by Michelle, who seems poised to fall for him, but is having a self-destructive affair with a married man. At the same time, mounting pressure from his family pushes him towards committing to Sandra. Leonard is forced to make an impossible decision – between the impetuousness of desire and the comfort of love – or risk falling back into the darkness that nearly killed him.

While Steve already posted his interview with Joaquin Phoenix for “Two Lovers”, his interview with James Gray will be online soon. Until then, you can watch a few clips from the movie below.
