Two Lovers

"Sometimes we leave everything to find ourselves."

Two Lovers is a romantic drama set in the Brooklyn area. It centers on a disturbed but eligible bachelor named Leonard (Joaquin Phoenix) who lives with his parents and has been set up with the daughter of a family business partner (Vinessa Shaw) by his parents. However, when Leonard meets a fickle but attractive new neighbor (Gwyneth Paltrow), he is torn between her and the business partner’s daughter.

It should probably be stated that Two Lovers is not a typical old-time romance since it is about a love triangle with one of the prospects being stable and the other, not. The story itself may not exactly be old-fashioned but its idea of unrequited love is.
