Miles Massey, a Los Angeles divorce attorney, has everything; sated on success, boredom has set in and hes looking for new challenges. Miles meet his match in the beautiful Marylin Rexroth, the soon-to-be ex-wife of one of his clients who is looking forward to the financial independence a divorce will bring. But to Miles considerable skills, she ends up with nothing. Underhanded tactics, deceptions and an undeniable attraction escalate as Marylin and Miles square off in this classic battle of the sexes. «Intolerable Cruelty is a battle-of-the-sexes story, a venerable genre. The hard-hearted woman and the soft-headed man are characters that have been handed down to us. We hope we havent ruined them.» (Joel and Ethan Coen)
