The story revolves around the turbulent relationship between Maureen Murphy (Robin Wright) and her husband Eddie Quinn (Sean Penn). Maureen is pregnant with Eddie's child when he suddenly disappears. She is left alone and frightened, and turns to her neighbor, Kiefer Smalley (Harry Dean Stanton), for comfort.

Kiefer takes advantage of Maureen and tries to rape her. When Eddie returns, he is enraged to find his wife assaulted and beaten up. He confronts Kiefer and shoots a paramedic who tries to intervene. As a result, Eddie is committed to a psychiatric institution for ten long years.

When Eddie is finally released, he is determined to reclaim his wife and start over again. However, he finds out that Maureen has moved on and is now happily married with three children. Eddie's little girl Jeanie is one of them.

Eddie's attempts to win Maureen back are unsuccessful, as she has no desire to rekindle their tumultuous relationship. As Eddie becomes increasingly desperate, he turns to alcohol and destructive behavior, which ultimately leads to tragic consequences.

"She's So Lovely" is a powerful portrayal of love, loss, and redemption. The movie features outstanding performances by the cast, particularly Robin Wright and Sean Penn, who bring depth and intensity to their roles. The film's nonlinear narrative and dreamlike imagery add to its emotional impact, creating a haunting and memorable cinematic experience.
