Storyline

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?

Trivia

John Bingham's novel, 'Five Roundabouts to Heaven', was adapted for "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" TV series as "The Tender Poisoner" (first aired 20.12.1962), by writer Lukas Heller. The 60-minute program featured Dan Dailey as Philip "Barney" Bartel, Jan Sterling as his wife Beatrice, and Howard Duff as their friend Peter Harding. See more »

Goofs

In some driving scenes, the lines in the streets are yellow. Also some warning signs are in yellow, and placed higher on their respective poles. This is not correct for the 1940s. Lines were white. And signs were placed closer to street level for ease of viewing. See more »

Quotes

Richard Langley: Whoever in this room who knows what goes on in the mind of the person who sleeps next to you... please, raise your hand... I know you can't, not honestly...

Witty, Wise, Wonderful
6 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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!
