Set in the insular world of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, Two Lovers is a classic romantic drama, with Joaquin Phoenix giving a raw and vulnerable performance as 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, Leonard meets two women in quick succession: Michelle, a mysterious and beautiful neighbor and Sandra, the lovely and caring daughter of a businessman who is buying out his family's business. Leonard is forced to make a life changing decision regarding the two very different women, between the impetuousness of desire and the comfort of love.
