Description

Not long after Louise Kirk's mother vanishes, the Richters and their adopted son, Abel, move in across the street, and Louise falls furiously in love. Skillfully interweaving the stories of Abel and Louise at different ages, The Romantic is a powerful exploration of the many incarnations of love and loss.
