This Clip Is Rated R

For the rest of this week, in honor of Valentine's Day, I'm going to share some of my all-time favorite movie scenes of love gone horribly awry.

The first here is from Damage, the 1992 Louis Malle film starring Jeremy Irons, Miranda Richardson, Juliet Binoche, and Julian Graves.

I've never seen a performance that better captures the utter devastation and confusion that occurs when your spouse betrays you--the way you question everything you've ever believed.

Too bad you couldn't have found the scene before this where Miranda Richardson's character tells Jeremy Irons he should have killed himself.

I would have burried you and I would have mourned you..

That was such a powerhouse scene. Miranda was nominated for an Oscar and should have won based on that scene and this one you've posted. A fabulous, fabulous movie.

I did find that scene, Collin, but I didn't want to spoil the whole movie.
