Married Life

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: Based on the 1951 pulp novel, "Five Roundabouts to Heaven", by John Bingham, this is the story of a man (Chris Cooper) who is cheating on his wife (Patricia Clarkson), and decides that killing her would be easier on her than getting a divorce.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Chris Cooper, Patricia Clarkson, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan, David Wenham

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketGo! A smart, mature movie for adults, that keeps you wondering what's going to happen next.

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: Yes, there is an underlying dark humor boiling under the surface of the drama.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: No, but it will have you on the edge of your seat-- emotionally-- not in an action way.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Could do, if it's remembered in the fall. The script and Patricia Clarkson's performance are worthy.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: It stars Chris Cooper, Patricia Clarkson, Rachel McAdams and Pierce Brosnan-- how do you think the acting is?!

Q: How is the Directing?

A: I was sitting in the second row, underneath what was possibly the biggest screen I've ever seen, so I'm going to go with: very tall... In other words, from my seat it was hard to get a fair view of the visuals, and I don't think I'm in a position to judge.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: Clever, original, and constantly turning in unlikely directions. Right when you think you know what's going to happen next, you find out that you don't. It lets you think, and puts your morality in direct conflict with your compassion. And here's the most unlikely part... one of the writers was also responsible for the hateful script known as I'm Not There.
