The Wife

Dir. Bjorn Runge. UK/USA, 2017. 1h 40m. Starring Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Alix Wilton Regan, Max Irons, Christian Slater, Elizabeth McGovern.

With her husband set to win a Nobel Prize for Literature, Joan reflects on the sacrifices she’s made to support him and her neglected dream to be a writer. An impeccable celebration of womanhood starring a career-high performance by Glenn Close.

'The glittering, frozen quality of [Close's] performance is as mesmeric as it is mysterious.' ★★★★ Tim Robey, The Telegraph

'An intelligent drama that treats its disempowered heroine with the respect she deserves.' ★★★★ Manuela Lazic, Little White Lies
