Married Life

Married Life is a drama of human behavior and marriage and how it can get you derailed, but also how it joins people back together.

Chris Cooper has fallen out of love with his wife, Pat, and is in love with a much younger woman. But he thinks she can't live without him, so divorce is out of the question.

His next plan is to kill her so she won't have to go through a messy divorce.

It's slow-moving but often a comic look at four people and how their lives intersect.

The acting is excellent and audiences can really enjoy and get caught up in these people's lives.

Filled with great performances, stylish art direction, and period costumes, Married Life hearkens back to another era of film making -- one where philandering husbands resort to homicide in order to find domestic bliss . . .

Still, it's a light-hearted romp into the lives of the unsatisfied -- all in search for love and a happy ending.

The plot of the movie Married Life is a circular ring of infidelities and loyalties meant to comment on the mysteries of marital bonds.

The film is a simple character-based melodrama and is more about the enduring relationship between husband and wife than it is about the excitement between husband and girlfriend.

The picture is set in 1948, but their issues are not period constrained.
