But, ignorant of Harry’s plot, Richard determines to build his own happiness whatever the cost.Sachs’s barbed comedy burrows into such a lushly realised portrait of post-war American suburbia that the thinly drawn protagonists have a hard time competing with it. It looks beautiful, and the convoluted plotting is initially the right side of Hitchcock pastiche, but the central conundrum is teased out over so many twists and false climaxes that ultimately it’s a shrug, not a shock, which greets the denouement.

I thought "Married Life" was the best movie I've seen in a long time. I liked the ironies in the plot and the casting was perfect. I liked the slowness of it and the lack of background music telling us how to feel. It had a great 40s look too. This is from one who was there.
