An exquisite depiction of a doomed love affair, set in noirish 1950s New York

In a hotel bar, a disenchanted writer tells a beautiful stranger the story of his latest doomed love affair. Sipping cocktails, the man reveals how he became transfixed by a lonely divorcée living in a cluttered apartment across the city.

When they first met, he had been aloof, uncommitted. But this changed irrevocably when a millionaire waltzed into his lover’s life, offering her a thousand dollars to spend the night. With betrayal lurking in the shadows and proclamations of feeling arriving too late, In Love is an exquisite examination of heartbreak set in 1950s New York.
