THE WIFE

Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) is a highly intelligent and still-striking beauty—the perfect devoted wife with 40 years spent sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to fan the flames of her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his skyrocketing literary career. Ignoring his infidelities and excuses because of his "art" with grace and humor, they’ve built a marriage upon uneven compromises and Joan's reached her breaking point. On the eve of Joe's Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel in a spectacular body of work, Joan's coup de grace is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career. THE WIFE is a poignant, funny and emotional journey; a celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation.

“…[A] fascinating and bravura performance from Glenn Close, in this hugely enjoyable dark comedy from director Björn Runge… Her Joan is a study in marital pain, deceit and the sexual politics of prestige. It’s a portrayal to put alongside Close’s appearances in DANGEROUS LIAISONS and FATAL ATTRACTION. This is an unmissable movie for Glenn Close fans… [Y]ou can’t watch it without becoming a fan.”—Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“[Close] takes on all the facets of Joan, wearing her outward appearance like an elegant coat, but letting flashes of all the 'other' Joans glint through, while Pryce crumples up into Joe's old cardigans like the perfect gentleman.” —Amber Wilkinson, Eye For Film
