The Wife (15)

Björn Runge | 2017 | Sweden | USA | UK | 100’

Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe relishes in his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man's wife. When Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the sacrifices, secrets and betrayals. A smart, extremely watchable and entertaining film, with a star turn from Glenn Close as Joan.
