“The Wife” is the complex and unflinching story of a woman growing out of the shadow of her husband’s success, anchored by fine performances from Jonathan Pryce and Glenn Close, for which Close won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture.
After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman (Close and Pryce) are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of a great man’s wife.
Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. Joe's literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950s. “The Wife” interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage, thirty-plus years later—a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love. [2018, US/UK/Sweden, 100 minutes, Rated: R].
