ROMANCE & CIGARETTES is a down-and-dirty musical love story. Nick (James Gandolfini) is a New York ironworker married to Kitty (Susan Sarandon), a strong but gentle woman with whom he has three grown daughters. He is secretly carrying on a torrid affair with the flame-haired Tula (Kate Winslet). When his wife catches him and Tula wants a commitment, Nick finds himself a prisoner of his primal urges. A good man at heart, he must find his way back to his family before he runs of out chances.
Drawing on inspirations as diverse as CHARLES BUKOWSKI and THE HONEYMOONERS, this romantic adventure features songs that are anthems of our time—from James Brown, Janis Joplin, Engelbert Humperdinck, Tom Jones, Bruce Springsteen, and more—which illuminate the characters' hopes and dreams. When pushed to their breaking points (and beyond), these conflicted characters break into song, singing along—sometimes lip-synching, sometimes in full voice—with the music lodged in their subconscious.
