CLOSED CAPTIONING & ASSISTIVE LISTENING AVAILABLE
Glenn Close, who plays the title character, has compared her Swedish director, Bjorn Runge, to Ingmar Bergman, and she’s not wrong. Written by the playwright and screenwriter Jane Anderson, based upon the novel by Meg Wolitzer, 
The Wife exhales itself with a chilly formality, in both its style and the way its characters relate. But under the cool exterior, much is roiling. We meet Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce), a Great American Novelist, in 1992, on the morning he wins the Nobel Prize. Buoying him up is his wife Joan (Close), who long ago subsumed her ambitions to support his. Or as she puts it later, “I am a kingmaker.” Watch Close’s face in these early scenes; imagine what she’s feeling because you will imagine something much different by the end. The Castlemans travel to Oslo to prep for the Nobel ceremony, trailed by Nathaniel (Christian Slater). He wants to be Castleman’s biographer, but smells a different story.--The Globe and Mail

“Close owns this movie, from beginning to end.” –Seattle Times

“Close plays this ignored, pushed-aside woman like a gathering storm…You can’t take your eyes off her.”  Rolling Stone
