Our take

The most secretly Cassavetian of films? As funny and compassionate as it is disturbing, Husbands delves deep into human nature. Masculinity is examined, shaken, exposed in all its rawness while Falk, Gazzara & Cassavetes move in circles from laughter to tears. An ode to friendship in its own right.
