NEON released the trailer for Robert Machoian’s powerful thriller The Killing of Two Lovers which arrives in theaters on February 23rd, 2021
The film, with its honest and sometimes brutal portrayals of marriage, is driven by impressively nuanced performances by stars Clayne Crawford (“Rectify”, “Lethal Weapon”), Sepideh Moafi (“The Deuce”, “The L Word: Generation Q”), Chris Coy (“The Deuce”, The Front Runner, Detroit), Avery Pizzuto, Arri Graham, and Ezra Graham.
The Killing of Two Lovers which made its World Premiere at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, follows David, who desperately tries to keep his family of six together during a separation from his wife, Nikki. They both agree to see other people but David struggles to grapple with his wife’s new relationship.
Written and directed by Machoian, The Killing of Two Lovers marks the filmmaker’s first solo narrative feature. His most recent short, The Minors, garnered him the Short Film Special Jury Award for Directing at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
The Killing of Two Lovers will be released by NEON on February 23, 2021 and will be eligible for consideration in this year’s awards season.
