It is America, 1949, and all is well - until happily married Harry Allen (Chris Cooper) tells his lifelong playboy friend Rich (Pierce Brosnan) that he is desperately in love and wants a divorce so as to achieve "complete happiness". He introduces Rich to his mistress, Kay (Rachel McAdams), naively unaware that this is not a good idea - and when he realises how his wife Pat (Patricia Clarkson) would suffer if they divorced, he has an idea of how to alleviate her pain - unaware that she, too, has something to hide.
