Product Description

Based on a pair of short stories by Andre Dubus, this drama brings two marriages and four lives to a crossroads by infidelity. Jack (Mark Ruffalo) is a college professor whose marriage to Terry (Laura Dern) has been going through a rough patch. Beyond the tensions over Terry's failings as a mother and housekeeper, Jack is deeply infatuated with Edith (Naomi Watts), the beautiful wife of his best friend, Hank (Peter Krause), a fellow professor and struggling poet. As it happens, Edith is also attracted to Jack, and they soon begin an affair that Edith is certain will soon be found out. Hank, meanwhile, is a man with a flexible attitude about his own fidelity, and he falls into a relationship with Terry. Before long, all four parties learn about the infidelity of their spouses and friends, with differing reactions; Terry becomes desperate to save her marriage, Jack decides he's in love with Edith, but neither couple is willing to divorce.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully observed drama of adultery and love 16 Feb 2006
By Amazon Customer TOP 1000 REVIEWER
This is my favourite plot, two married couples developing cross relationships.
On the one hand we have Jack (Ruffalo) and Terry Linden (Dern), financially constrained and with a deep underlying togetherness that seems separate to their marriage. In the interviews on the DVD Dern looks the right age to be Ruffalo’s wife, but in the film it seems she has been deliberately photographed to look older, which seems to accentuate her vulnerability, desperation and feelings of alienation as she slowly becomes aware of her husbands infidelity.
On the other hand are the Linden’s best friends Hank (Krause) and Edith Evans (Watts), less deeply committed to each other than their friends the Lindens, and with Hank emotionally involved and frustrated in trying to get his novel and poems published.
The dialogue is absolutely superb, natural and incisive and always at the service of the drama, these are real people, they live, we know them. Also the scenes with their children are beautifully observed, sometimes clearly showing the adult absorbed in one thing and the child in another.
The acting by all four principals is as fine as you are likely to encounter, and the chemistry in all directions is absolutely right.
Welcome digressions into some nice countryside, very fine responsive music, and direction that is so good it doesn’t seem to exist, this film appears real life not a drama.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shows the bleakness of exhausted relationships 5 Dec 2007
This is not an easy film. It shows two married couples who are good friends and their relationships within and between the couples. It shows well the bleakness of relationships which have lost their love. The adultery is a symptom of the dying love, not the cause. The miasma that lies across the film from beginning to end is the lack of any real communication. Conversation, even in the thrill of making love to their best friend's partner, is superficial and totally lacking in passion. Tendresse is absent. Only cynicism posing as wit adds any zest to dialogue, although there are the usual stand up rows. The Laura Dern character is really the only one to show that her love for her husband is intact yet this is crushed relentlessly but ultimately she is the one who best adjusts to her circumstances.

Many of us will have suffered the breakdown of relationships and this film has unpleasant resonances because it is so close to the bone. The title could refer to the loveless marriages, emptied of the feelings they once possessed, like the echoing, bare rooms of a deserted house.

3.0 out of 5 stars A slow burner about 2 married couples 13 May 2008
By Dazman
I like this film, but realise that this is not for everyone by any means, this moves along at a gentle pace, both couples are also friends with one another, one couple are on the verge of splitting up whist the other couple are only really looking for a bit of fun.

There are some really good one liners from Mark Ruffalo in particular who stands out above the rest on the cast all of whom are good and solid too.

This is a life film more than anything else, it's not a romantic film as such, there is romance to a degree, sometimes it is quite brutal, this is well worth taking a look if you're curious.

"We Don't Live Here Anymore," John Curran's downbeat domestic drama, adapted from two novellas by Andres Dubus, is enough of a bummer to make anyone contemplating marriage move to Brazil - alone. Jack Linden, (Mark Ruffalo), and Hank Evans, (Peter Krause), along with their respective spouses Terry, (Laura Dern) and Edith, (Naomi Watts), are close friends who share much in common - including each other's spouses. All four are miserable, depressed, desperate and disappointed. So much for the purported secret thrills of infidelity.
The two men are English professors at a local college. The wives keep house, Edith better than Terry - one is meticulous, the other a slob, and take care of their children. Hank, a writer who has his office bulletin board plastered with rejection slips, is detached, moody, seemingly amoral, with a history of philandering. He has minimal energy for his family. His wife is well aware of all this. She is in the middle of an intense affair with Jack, her best friend's husband, and may have initiated the dalliance out of revenge for hubby's lurid past. Jack, in love with Edith, shows even less affection to Terry than Hank shows to Edith. He is petulant and manipulative, like a little boy, but he loves his kids. I wanted to pop a Prozac about here. Terry is faithful to Jack, so far. She loves him and wants to make everything better. Masochistic behavior? Things will never improve, so she drinks and throws tantrums. Jack could care less. So, Terry and Hank begin a relationship of their own. Vindictive? Who knows. None of these individuals show any sign of becoming happier, even with the extra curricular activities. And I cannot find an adult in the entire movie that I like. All of them need immediate intensive therapy.

Whether you enjoy this film or not is, in the large, down to you.
You could view it and believe the pace to be sluggish, the whole temperature of the film tepid and the plot over used and with nothing new to offer.
Admittedly if you want a fast pace and something grippping, this won't be your cup of tea. But you may enjoy it because, these actors have done a wonderful job. This film is subtle, it requires for you to have a little patience and understand this isn't meant to come across as a deeply over dramatised film, we're meant to see these characters as real. They've crafted their roles carefully, they're all flawed, like in reality, they are also, thank God, not all polished, perfectly dressed Hollywood Barbies. They are two good looking men, and their wives are different, yet attractive. Naomi in this role looks very different, she looks like a boring suburban mum.
If you look a little harder and think of these people and their struggle as real, you'll see beautiful acting, a subtlety that makes this film believable, a lovely score that brings out the films underlying sorrow and a script that shows the reality of adultery and marriage, without the frills.

A lovely film, if you're prepared to be patient.
