Movie Preview: Rachel McAdams, Patricia Clarkson in Married Life


Kay: "We can't build our happiness on the unhappiness of someone else."
Harry: "What other way is there?"

This exchange pretty much sums up the dark tone of the trailer for Married Life, a romantic drama starring Patricia Clarkson, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan and the ever-creepy Chris Cooper. Cooper plays Harry, a man who decides he needs to kill his wife (Clarkson) in order to spare her the pain of him leaving her for the young, beautiful Kay (McAdams). As he sets about planning the "merciful" murder, Harry's friend Richard (Brosnan) falls for Kay.

Set in the 1940s, the film has a rich, sultry look to it, especially McAdams' shockingly white-blond hair. Married Life is set to open in limited release March 7, so to check out the trailer,

McAdams platinum do isn't the most flattering on her, but I think they wanted the dramatic, bombshell look. Not to mention an actress with chops, which is why I'm sure Scar-Jo wasn't cast.

looks interesting. i like all the actors, which is a plus, for sure. i also don't like rachel mcadams' hair but i am glad that she gets into her rolls. so many actresses don't and look the same in every movie. boring.

I should clarify: I think Chris Cooper is a fantastic, mesmerizing actor and I love watching him! But he always gives me the shivers. :)

Yeah, that hair color doesn't look so hot on her. I love the 40's. My favorite decade. :) Sounds like this will be an interesting movie.

Rachel's hair looks awful on her. Very few can pull of platinum blonde and she ain't one of them! Looks like this would've been better made as a tv episode not a movie.
