A Quiet Little Marriage

A young couple who have different ideas about the future of their relationship find themselves drifting into a domestic civil war in this independent drama. Dax (Cy Carter) and Olive (Mary Elizabeth Ellis) have been married for a few years, and while they clearly love one another and have a satisfying sex life, their difficult relationships with their families manifest themselves in very different ways. Olive is looking after her father Bruce (Michael O'Neill) as his memories and personality fall prey to Alzheimer's syndrome, and the loss has made her eager to have a baby. Meanwhile, Dax has become the unwilling benefactor of his brother Jackson (Jimmi Simpson), a drug addict who often stops by needing cash or a place to crash, usually in the company of his sullen, silent girlfriend Sylvia (Lucy DeVito). Jackson's dependence on Dax has poisoned him on the notion of having children, and the tug of war between Olive and Dax over potential parenthood has seen them both take drastic, ridiculous action, as Olive deliberately sabotages her own diaphragm in hopes of getting pregnant while Dax counters by putting birth control pills in her breakfast. A Quiet Little Marriage was the first feature film from writer and director Mo Perkins.

Bittersweet romance with comic twists and a few tragic turns, well worth the viewing time. Nicely crafted script that starts where most Hollywood romances stop, when two people decide to get married. I truly enjoyed it when I saw it the AFI film festival and I'm excited to get the dvd.
