Behind any great man, there’s always a greater woman. Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) has spent forty years sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambition to support her charismatic, philandering husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his brilliant literary career. Their faithful pact reaches breaking point on the eve of his being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. The Wife is an emotional journey of self-discovery and liberation.
“[Glenn Close] gives one of the richest, most riveting and complicated performances of her career” The Hollywood Reporter
“The veteran actress is a marvel of twisty understatement here, delivering emotions that conceal as much as they reveal, and offering onion-like layers that invite repeat viewings considering some of the film’s later revelations” Variety
