The lives of two lovelorn spouses from separate marriages, a registered sex offender, and a disgraced ex-police officer intersect as they struggle to resist their vulnerabilities and temptations in suburban Massachusetts.
Echoes of "Madame Bovary" in the American suburbs. Sarah's in a loveless marriage to an advertising executive, long days with her young daughter at the park and the pool, wanting more. Brad is an immature househusband, married to a flinty documentary filmmaker. Ronnie is just out of prison - two years for indecent exposure to a minor - living with his elderly mother, May; Larry is a retired cop, fixated on driving Ronnie away. Sarah and Brad connect, a respite of adult companionship at the pool. Ronnie and Larry have their demons. Brad should be studying for the bar; Larry misses his job; Ronnie's mom thinks he needs a girlfriend. Sarah longs to refuse to be trapped in an unhappy life. Where can these tangled paths lead?Written by
In the source novel, Patrick Wilson's character is named Todd, not Brad. See more »
When Larry references the mall shooting he says the boys were playing with an air gun at the Big 5. Big 5 Sporting Goods stores do not exist east of Texas, while the story takes place in Massachusetts. See more »
A great adaptation of Perrota's gem of a novel. I enjoyed the book so much that I actually dreaded seeing this film because I was sure that I would be disappointed (as is almost always the case when you read the book first). But I was relieved to find that the film was excellent probably because Perrita was wrote part of the screenplay. I know many hate being "hit over the head" with narration, but I think it adds some strong fabric to the story line. I loved the new ending (so much different than the book) too.
The only big problem I had was the casting of Winslett. She was great of course, but she doesn't pull off the "plain-Jane" that Sara is supposed to be. In fact she is up to par or even prettier than Connelly.
