A Married Couple
Before reality TV came A Married Couple, the ‘actuality drama‘ for which Allan King (Warrendale) documented Billy and Antoinette Edwards’s tempestuous relationship over a 10-week period. Played out mostly inside the Edwards’s Midtown Toronto home, the film captures a zeitgeist of Toronto middle-class bohemia expressed through the Edwards’s preoccupations, philosophies and fashion. Watching the Edwards play emotional and psychological tug-of-war is as uncomfortable as it is riveting. The effects are long-lasting; this addictive doc plays havoc with your psyche.
