MUBI's take

Steadily assuming its reputation as the finest film from director James Gray, this sensitive ensemble piece features a complexly woven performance from Joaquin Phoenix. A nuanced tale of family, commitment, and unrequited love, Two Lovers is one of the great American films of the last decade.
