The late 1940s. Richard Langley, a bachelor playboy, narrates a story that starts when his best friend, Harry Allen, invites him to lunch to tell Richard he's in love. Trouble is, Harry's already married to Pat; he worries Pat would be hurt too deeply by a divorce. Then, Harry's new love, Kay, joins them. Richard is smitten, so when he finds out that Pat may be in love with someone else but won't tell Harry because she fears he would be too hurt, Richard can't decide if he should let all the cats out of the bag. He'd unite pairs of lovers, but he'd lose Kay. Meanwhile, Harry decides that a swift end to Pat's life would be more kind than divorcing her. He buys poison. Murder will out? Written by

With Married Life, director Ira Sachs has pulled off a cinematic hat trick of the highest order. This marvelous new movie manages to be at once droll comedy, gripping suspense drama, and stylish 1940s period piece. As light-hearted film noir, it leaves the viewer guessing from start to finish. Sex! Murder! Intrigue! What next? At the same time, Married Life boasts engaging, emotionally truthful performances -- particularly from Cooper and Clarkson -- that linger in the mind long after the closing credits.
Go see this film--or regret it for your entire (married or unmarried) life!
