Just saw The Wife at the Hyland Cinema.
I didn’t know what to expect going in and was completely enthralled by what I saw on the screen.
The film is about an affluent older couple, celebrated author Joe Castleman and his supportive wife Joan, who seem to have it all . We learn how they met and fell in love through a series of flashbacks.
However, Joan questions her life choices as she travels to Stockholm with her flirtatious husband, where he is slated to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature.
While there it becomes obvious that they have a carefully guarded secret about their working relationship – which I will not reveal here in deference to those people who plan on seeing it.
The Wife has stellar cast led by veteran actress Glenn Close who gives an Oscar worthy performance. Other cast members include Christian Slater, Elizabeth McGovern, and Max Irons.
See it before it’s gone.
Directed by Björn Runge. Screenplay by Jane Anderson based on the novel The Wife by Meg Wolitzer.
