Stephen King’s A Good Marriage | Review

3 October 2014 6:15 PM, PDT | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

Golden Years: Askin Adapts Stephen King’s Domestic Dilemma

For those hoping for resurgence in the quality of Stephen King stock, the unique promise of A Good Marriage is not the ticket. Sporting King’s first adapted screenplay of his own work since 1989’s Pet Sematary, his customary flourishes are stamped all over it, including the predilection for the perspective of the underdog and plenty of trawling around in the private headspace of the favored character, which inevitably leads to moments of exaggerated artificiality. True, King has (or had) a unique flair for creating intriguing and sometimes empowered female protagonists, but the suburban housewife anchoring the lukewarm scenario here isn’t nearly as well-honed as the film necessitates.

Married for twenty five years, Darcy (Joan Allen) and Bob (Anthony Lapaglia) seem to have found the secret to success. Celebrating with friends and associates, including their daughter, Petra (Kristen Connolly »

'A Good Marriage' (2014) Movie Review

2 October 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

There was a moment during A Good Marriage, adapted by Stephen King from his own novella and directed by Peter Askin (Company Man), where I thought to myself, you know, I'm kind of digging this. In the aforementioned scene, gas station lights and a restaurant sign in the background provide a cool ambience as an unidentified woman walks out to her car, the screen fading in from black to reveal a noirish gray color palette. A dull, eerie piano score kicks in as the woman gets into her car and drives away, unknowingly tailed by another vehicle from which the action is captured. Unfortunately this is the opening shot of the film, and it is followed shortly by a cliched opening monologue, a generic party sequence, an uncomfortable sex scene, and some seriously hokey dialogue. I'm not sure either King or Askin had terribly lofty ambitions for the film anyway, »

Stephen King’S A Good Marriage – The Review

2 October 2014 11:34 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Steven King’s books and films are rife with zombie babies, witches, vampires and werewolves. This lengthy list of creatures now includes your average next door neighbor, the serial killer.

In Stephen King’S A Good Marriage, Darcy (Joan Allen) and Bob (Anthony Lapaglia) Anderson, a happily married couple, are enjoying a 25th anniversary party hosted by their two children. Their daughter is getting married in a few weeks. The Andersons are empty nesters with a lovely home, Bob has a successful job as an accountant and is a coin collector – theirs seems to be picture perfect marriage, except for one thing… Bob is a serial killer. He’s brutally murdered 12 women and goes by his alter-ego, “Beadie”. He’s also been taunting Maine’s Attorney General with notes signed from him since his first killing in 1980.

Finding Out Your Husband is a Serial Killer in Stephen King's A Good Marriage

30 September 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Village Voice | See recent Village Voice news »

Stephen King's body of work is formidable, and he's still churning out novels at an admirable pace, which makes this adaptation of A Good Marriage mildly surprising. It's not bad, but it's puzzling why director Peter Askin ("best" known for 2007's Trumbo) and King himself bothered to adapt a nondescript novella from the Master of Horror's autumn years. "Nondescript" certainly describes Bob (Anthony Lapaglia) and Darcy (Joan Allen) Anderson, a couple enjoying their 25th anniversary. This is King, however, so there's also a Mysterious Creepy Guy shadowing the couple who may be connected to the serial killer called "Beadie," who recently slew his 12th victim. It's not much of a spoiler to say Bob, who leaves Ned Flanders-esque notes advising his wife how to park the »

Joan Allen gives motherly advice in clip from Stephen King's 'A Good Marriage'

Stephen King may be one of our most prolific writers, but he tends to let others get the ol' finger blisters when it comes to adapting his tales for the big screen. One exception? The forthcoming, Peter Askin-directed A Good Marriage, for which Uncle Stevie did decide to pen the screenplay version of his novella. “I knew Peter Askin and I liked him,” King recently told EW, explaining the origin of the project. “About a thousand years ago, John Mellencamp and I got involved with this musical called Ghost Brothers of Darkland County.
