'You're so good together. What happened?"
In Eden, a gloomy Irish marital portrait, that question haunts Breda Farrell (Eileen Walsh). Her relationship with her husband, Billy (Aiden Kelly), a telephone lineman, has turned empty and suffocatingly sad: The couple have a boy and a girl, a modest but comfortable house in a nice town, and a 10th anniversary that is imminent.
But when Billy creeps home after a night at the pub, Breda turns away and pretends to sleep - better that than to face the cold humiliation of a partner with no interest in making love.
