Married Life

Alfred Hitchcock would approve.

I think the Master of Suspense would have enjoyed this stylish, ’40s-set tale of marital strife and possible homicide.

Subtle, intriguing work, nailed by a first-rate cast, it keeps us guessing where it’s going, before surprising us more than once along the twisted path it walks.

You get a love triangle with best friends Chris Cooper and Pierce Brosnan both pursuing a radiant Rachel McAdams, double-crosses galore, and impeccably-handled back-stabbings, all done with a real sense of style.

Deft and delightful, it pays tribute to old-school thrillers while also staking out its own ground.

How refreshing.
