Culver City, CA (June 30, 2008) –A wry blend of dark humor, romantic deception, and stylish melodrama – with an invigorating dash of suspense – Married Life, starring Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper (2002, Best Supporting Actor, Adaptation, Breach), Pierce Brosnan (the upcoming Mamma Mia!, Die Another Day), Patricia Clarkson (Lars and the Real Girl, Good Night and Good Luck), and Rachel McAdams (Wedding Crashers, The Notebook), will be released on DVD and Blu-ray™ High-Def on September 2, 2008 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Synopsis
Harry (Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper, 2002, Best Supporting Actor, Adaptation) and Pat (Academy Award® nominee Patricia Clarkson, 2003, Best Supporting Actress, Pieces of April) have a nice, respectable marriage. But when Harry falls in love with a beautiful young lady, he decides he must kill his wife, because divorce would cause her too much pain. Richard (Pierce Brosnan) is Harry’s caddish best friend who realizes he must have Harry’s lovely mistress (Rachel McAdams) for himself. Love and friendship are contemplated with noir-style suspense and wry humor in this sly comedy that reveals there’s nothing quite as devastating, or as divine, as married life.

Commentary with Director Ira Sachs

Married Life was directed by Ira Sachs, co-written by Sachs and Oren Moverman, based on the book, “Five Roundabouts to Heaven” by John Bingham. With Chris Cooper, Pierce Brosnan, Patricia Clarkson and Rachel McAdams.
