The Wife (2017) (HNR)
Release Date: January 29, 2019.
"Close delivers an Oscar-worthy performance."
Pete Hammond, Deadline.
After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman (Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce) are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. Joe's literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950s. The Wife interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage thirty-three plus years later, with a lifetime's shared compromises. -- (C) Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, 2017, UK/Sweden/USA.
