THE WIFE (15) – 2017 UK/USA/Swe/Swi 100 min

Director: Björn Runge
Stars: Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Christian Slater, Max Irons

Is this the film that finally gets Glenn Close an Oscar after 6 nominations? She would certainly deserve it for playing the wife of lionised author Joe Castleman (Pryce), who is being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Hounded by a sleazy hack (Slater), their marriage starts to seem less the perfect match of author and helpmeet that they have portrayed to the world. Based on the acclaimed novel by Meg Wolitzer, this “is a smart, supremely watchable and entertaining film” (The Guardian).
