The Wife (15)

Director Bjorn Runge. Drama


After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe are complements. Joe enjoys his very public role as a Great American Novelist, the devoted Joan pours her considerable intellect, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. Joan is about to drop a bombshell. It’s a pleasure simply to watch Close and Pryce at their considerable best. Poignant and powerful.

Starring Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Max Irons, Christian Slater


Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Good audience on a light sunny evening. Positive comment, a lot of discussion. Great performance from Glenn Close.

Superb performances by the leading actors. Thoroughly enjoyable film.

Good acting but bad language unnecessary.
