“A smart, supremely watchable and entertaining film…Close gives a wonderful star turn.” ★★★★★ – The Guardian

Glenn Close gives a truly masterful performance in award-winning Swedish filmmaker Bjorn Runge’s hugely enjoyable new drama, adapted from Meg Wolitzer’s 2003 novel.

Close plays Joan Castleman, an elegant woman who has spent forty years sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to support her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his high-profile literary career. But the foundations of their marriage have built upon a set of uneven compromises, and Joan has reached a turning point. Poignant, funny and emotional, The Wife is a celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation.

With a wider ensemble cast including Max Irons, Elizabeth McGovern and Christian Slater.
