Married Life
Filmfest 2008

Harry decides he must kill his wife Pat because he loves her too much to let her suffer when he leaves her. Harry and his much younger girlfriend Kay are head over heels, but his best friend Richard wants to win Kay for himself. As Harry implements his awkward plans for murdering his wife, the other characters are occupied by their own deceptions. Like Harry, they are overwhelmed by their passions but still struggle to avoid hurting others. A strong blend of suspense, star-crossed romance, and wry comedy of manners, MARRIED LIFE is an unconventional human drama about the irresistible power and utter madness of love. "A simmering tale of jealousy, betrayal, adultery and murderous plans most foul. Four wonderful actors form a stylish equation as finely tuned as a string quartet. Rex Reed, NEW YORK OBSERVER Based on the 1953 novel "Five Roundabouts to Heaven" by John Bingham, who was John le Carré's boss at MI5 and the model for the George Smiley character.
