Married Life (working title: Marriage) is drama film directed by Ira Sachs. The film is based on the 1953 John Bingham pulp mystery novel, Five Roundabouts to Heaven. The cast includes Chris Cooper, Pierce Brosnan, Patricia Clarkson and Rachel McAdams. The story is set in an unnamed Pacific Coast city in 1949.
