#SUNDANCE: “THE KILLING OF TWO LOVERS”
Review by Amanda Gilmore for Mr. Will Wong
David and his wife Nikki have decided to take a break from each other to figure out what they want out of life and their relationship. However, there is one problem : David doesn’t want a break.
Writer-Director Robert Machoian has made a slow-burn Drama about a marriage and family falling apart. Machoian never shies away from the hate, regret and pain one feels when they feel their loved one slipping away. That’s what makes this Film an honest portrayal of one of our worst fears: losing the ones we love. Overall, The Killing of Two Lovers is an impressive study into love and masculinity and has nuanced performances most particularly from its lead Clayne Crawford.
