Boston Marriage, written and directed by David Mamet, gets its
Los Angeles premiere, starring Rebecca Pidgeon, Alicia Silverstone, and Mary Steenburgen.
Mamet, who has long been known as the voice of male America, has tackled another animal altogether with his wickedly funny drawing room' comedy Boston Marriage. Set at the turn of the century, Mamet takes us inside a Boston Marriage, a euphemism commonly used for two women living together without apparent male companionship or support. What ensues is a perfect blend of an old-fashioned drawing room comedy infused with the fast, furious and side-splitting dialogue that Mamet always delivers. Ben Brantley of the New York Times said, "Move aside boys, with your gutter talk and con games and slovenly ways. It's girl's night out in Mametville..." Indeed it is.
