Wallace Shawn (MY DINNER WITH ANDRE) adapts his own play to the screen with this darkly comic and slightly surreal journey through one day alongside a neurotically dysfunctional married couple (Julianne Moore and Matthew Broderick) living in Manhattan. Griffin Dunne (AFTER HOURS), Campbell Scott (RODGER DODGER), Bob Balaban (GOSFORD PARK), and Julie Hagerty (AIRPLANE!) also star in this captivating film.
Four-time Oscar nominee Julianne Moore (Children of Men) and two-time Tony Award winner Matthew Broderick (The Producers) star in this serio-comic trip through a day in the lives of a dysfunctional married couple. Adapted by Wallace Shawn (My Dinner With Andre) from his own play, Marie and Bruce begins with the couple's venomous breakfast conversation and ends with an intimate dinner where Marie finally reveals her secret desires to her husband. Brilliantly sarcastic, often funny, yet deeply moving, Marie and Bruce is an acting tour de force that finely captures Shawn's legendary ?perverse wit? (Kurt Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter).
