I’ve got an intense trailer here for an upcoming drama thriller titled The Killing of Two Lovers. The story follows a man named David who is desperately trying to keep his family of six together during a separation from his wife, Nikki. While they both agree to see other people, David struggles to grapple with his wife’s new relationship and he starts to become unhinged.
The movie was written and directed by Robert Machoian and it stars Clayne Crawford, Sepideh Moafi, Chris Coy, Avery Pizzuto, Arri Graham, and Ezra Graham. Here’s the synopsis:
David is trying to keep it together. He and his wife, Nikki, are going through a time of transition and allowing each other space to figure out what it is they want from life and from their relationship. But there is one major issue: David doesn’t want space. He just wants things to get better, and he plays along with Nikki because he suspects it’s the only thing that may keep them and their four kids together. But he is hotheaded, jealous, and terrified of losing his family—an explosive combination in a claustrophobically small town where private lives seem impossible to preserve.
The Killing of Two Lovers is described as a “captivating study on masculinity, love, and ambiguity, propelled by impressively nuanced and honest performances.”
The Killing of Two Lovers will be released by NEON on February 23, 2021.
