Married Life

Married Life ★★★ 2007 (PG-13)

Set in 1949 and steeped in the style, mood, and sensibilities of the time, this is the story of Harry Allen (Cooper), a buttoned-down married man who falls in love with young and gorgeous widow Kay (McAdams). Burdened with guilt and hoping for understanding, Harry confides in his womanizing pal Richard (Brosnan), who then becomes fascinated with Kay, too. Harry's marriage to Pat (Clarkson) is functional if not entirely satisfying and Pat appears to know nothing of the affair. Harry decides to end his marriage but is so duty bound to Pat that he plans to murder her rather than subject her to the pain of a divorce (hmm, wonder if that's the option she'd pick). Several big surprises hold together this intriguing, smart drama. 90m/C DVD . US Chris Cooper, Patricia Clarkson, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan, David Wenham; D: Ira Sachs; W: Ira Sachs, Oren Moverman; C: Peter Deming; M: Dickon Hinchliffe.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
