Maybe Romantic Dramas Aren’t Dead After All


I think I may have cinematic PTSD from the wave of truly awful movies that followed in the success of “The Notebook,” most of them also based on novels by Nicholas Sparks. They’re a rough spot in the history of filmmaking, and I went into Vicky Wight’s “The Lost Husband” expecting more of the same overcooked tripe.

Much to my surprise, “The Lost Husband” is a solid adult drama, a movie that’s too soft at times but more often tender with its characters.

“Maybe romantic dramas aren’t dead after all.”

“Just the kind of comfort food that fans of the romance genre crave right now.”

“It’s not ‘syrupy’ or ‘saccharine.’ Perhaps, it is ‘agave’ — a slightly healthier sweet.”

“Wonderfully touching, hugely satisfying.”
