Why Don’t You Love Me? follows a miserable couple, Claire and Mark, struggling through their marriage while “feeling like something is not quite right in their reality,” teases A24. The graphic novel that the film is described as a “pitch-black comedy about marriage, alcoholism, depression, and mourning lost opportunities,” with surprising twists along the way.
