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)

Excellent film, great acting and very clear diction. All our audience gave it the thumbs up.

Superb performances by the leading actors. Thoroughly enjoyable film.

A good film of a rather thin story, held together and lifted by a superb performance from Glen Close in the title role; somewhat spoiled by excessive use of the F-word.
