Married Life ()

directed by
featuring Pierce Brosnan, Chris Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Patricia Clarkson, David Wenham

After entering into a passionate affair with a much younger woman, an unhappily married man resorts to murder as a means of eliminating his wife in director Ira Sachs' period melodrama. Set in the 1940s, Marriage tells the tale of Harry (Chris Cooper) -- a man whose wife, Pat (Patricia Clarkson), only wants sex. Smitten by the beautiful Kay (Rachel McAdams) but ultra-sensitive to his wife's feelings -- so sensitive that he can't stand the thought of breaking her heart -- Harry opts to poison his wife as a means of allowing the marriage to end with her pride still intact. Harry's scheme soon goes horribly awry, however, when after revealing the plan to his best friend, Richard (Pierce Brosnan), Richard too falls in love with the ethereal young beauty and sets into motion a cunning plan all his own. A serpentine tale of murderous deception, Marriage was co-scripted by director Sachs and screenwriter Oren Moverman. Jason Buchanan, Rovi Hide synopsis

Sivvie

A glamorous look into love and need.

by Sivvie on Mar 3, 2010

This is an absorbing movie, and beautifully filmed, with the leads glamorous and classy. Married Harry (Chris Cooper) has fallen in love with Kay (the beautiful Rachel McAdams) and wants to marry her but because of his reluctance to cause pain to his wife (the always watchable Patricia Clarkson), he decides to murder her. His friend, played by Pierce Brosnan, also falls for Kay and therein lies a plot of layers of deceit, of surprising twists and suspense. It is all beautifully photographed with those early 50's clothes displayed perfectly by the leads. (Pierce Brosnan's trilby should have a credit of its own!) There is a 30's feel to this movie - the way it is filmed, the deliberate dialogue, the physical grace of the 4 main actors. Chris Cooper is always a joy, as is Patricia Clarkson, but Rachel McAdams holds her own. Pierce Brosnan looks handsome and comes across as very suave and in control of any situation. Just to watch these actors moving across the screen is almost enough, so an unusual plot is an added bonus. Definitely a must.
