Marie and Bruce is a 2004 drama film from Holedigger and New Films. It is directed by Tom Cairns and stars Julianne Moore and Matthew Broderick. It was based on the 1978 play of the same name by Wallace Shawn and premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on January 19, 2004. Although the film was well received and starred many major motion picture stars, it failed to receive distribution and remained obscure, until it was released on DVD in March 2009. The music was done by Mark degli Antoni of the band Soul Coughing.[1]


Based on the 1978 play by Wallace Shawn, the sardonic film is about one day in the breakdown of a marriage.[2]
