A couple on the brink of divorce decides to keep their marital woes secret as they help their daughter plan her wedding. As the two work together on the happy occasion, they soon discover that their own marriage might just be worth saving.
Brooks Caldwell, (Cary Elwes) an erudite and handsome lawyer, seems to have it all: wealth, social status and a red hot career. His success is, in reality, a product of his marriage to his beautiful, socialite wife, Amanda, (Terri Polo) a wealthy timber heiress. Unlike most, who would remain content to enjoy a life of luxury and privilege, Brooks continues to risk everything by having extramarital affairs. Brooks' philandering, in addition to humiliating Amanda, has driven her to the point of a mental breakdown. Having been pushed over the edge, Amanda orchestrates a just and elaborate plan to bring her husband down. When Brooks leaves for a weekend romp with his latest squeeze, (Agnes Bruckner) his life quickly descends into a bizarre, nightmarish, downward spiral.Written by
The greatness of this film is in the writing. If you enjoy dark comedies, than this film is for you. This movie is well acted with Cary Elwes and Teri Polo starring. Brooks (played by Cary Elwes) lives a life of luxury thanks to his uber rich wife Amanda (Teri Polo). Brooks has anything a man could desire but, it's not enough. Brooks weakness is that he likes to have affairs with other women. He has driven his wife to the point where she is crazy and decides to plot some major revenge. When her plan is carried out, all hell breaks loose. Suddenly, Brooks is caught up in a cat and mouse game for his very survival. The movie is a bit wordy but very intelligent like a Whit Stillman movie almost. I think it's fair to say that the movie is for a more sophisticated audience who can appreciate the black humor. I can't say enough about it. after initially renting the film, I went back and purchased it on Amazon so I could watch it again.
