Fri 22nd February 2019

After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman (Glenn Close and Jonathan 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 Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. His 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. Sony Pictures

“Close is absolutely mesmerising as the woman who gives every appearance of standing faithfully by her man, yet with myriad subtle looks and glances suggests a lifetime of simmering discontent.”  Radio Times

“It is a smart, supremely watchable and entertaining film, and Close gives a wonderful star turn.” The Guardian
