The Wife  100 mins
Joan and Joe still complement each other after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man’s wife. But as Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals. Starring Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Max Irons, Elizabeth McGovern and Christian Slater.
