Two Lovers, set to be released on February 13th.

‘Recovering from a broken engagement, living at his parents apartment in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, and working at the family-owned Laundromat, Leonard (Joaquin Phoenix) blunders though his stagnant existence with little joy. After a series of failed suicide attempts, Leonard is invigorated by encounters with Michelle (Gwyneth Platrow) a prepossessing yet troubled woman who moves into his building. Leonard is smitten from first contact, but Michelle, self-involved and entangled with a married lawyer, responds only with patronizing affection. Meanwhile, Leonard continues to casually date Sandra (Vinessa Shaw), a nice Jewish girl who is the daughter of his parents' potential business partners. Doting and beautiful, Sandra would be a far more suitable partner for Leonard, but he of course remains fixated with Michelle. ‘Two Lovers' invokes the eternal conflict of the sober mind versus the impassioned heart. With a protagonist who must grapple between his instincts, family duties, and desire....'

This is Joaquin's last role before retiring from acting to focus on his music career. You can visit *Here* to listen to him rapping... :)

To be very honest I've never really found Joaquin attractive, but this movie looks great......and ’UNA FURTIVA LAGRIMA’(the song at the end of the trailer) is one of my most favorite arias.
