Based on Richard Yates' classic 1961 novel, this puts us in the middle of the disintegration of a marriage. Frank and April are good-looking and bright, have a lovely house in the suburbs and two cute kids - but they are horribly unhappy. The idea of escaping to Paris offers up some hope, but is it just one last hopeless attempt to paper over the cracks? Director Sam Mendes hones in on the contrast between the physical beauty of the Wheelers' world and the ugliness of their emotions.
One of screen legend Marilyn Monroe's most famous films, this comedy sees her play a bombshell neighbour to a man tempted while his wife is away.
