David and Dana Hurst are a seemingly enviable couple who share a successful dental practice together. With two houses and three children, life is good, that is until David sees his wife in the arms of another man. Thrown into turmoil he begins a slow descent into anger and resentment heightened by a series of real life and fantasy encounters with one of his obnoxious patients (portrayed by Dennis Leary). Things come to an embittered head when the family is struck down with the flu.
Adapted from Jane Smiley's novel The Age of Grief, and directed by Alan Rudolph (Mrs. Parker & The Vicious Circle, Afterglow) The Secret Lives of Dentists is a wonderful examination of a marriage in trouble that echoes 'American Beauty' in its darkly humorous approach.
