In a recent interview with The New York Times, real-life married couple Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz seemed as happy as could be: She thinks he’s a great cook, they love to go on luxury vacations, and they relish opportunities to work together. In other words, when they break each other’s hearts as the less-than-happy husband and wife in Harold Pinter’s 1978 masterwork, Betrayal, it’s all an act—they swear. Betrayal begins at the end of a long love affair between a woman and her husband’s close friend and proceeds to tell the story in reverse chronological order. Mike Nichols, who won a Tony for best director for Death of a Salesman last year, directs.
