More About The Wife - Glenn Close
 
 
 
Overview

Swedish director Björn Runge's drama film is based on American writer eg Wolitzer's 2003 novel of the same name. Glenn Close stars as an ageing wife and mother accompanying her egotistical husband (Jonathan Pryce) on a trip to Stockholm to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. Burdened by further evidence of her husband's infidelities and the weight of her own unrealized literary ambitions, she refuses to play the role of a self-effacing and supportive wife any longer.

Reviews:
"Like a bomb ticking away toward detonation, Glenn Close commands the center of The Wife: still, formidable and impossible to look away from." - 09/16/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"[Close] is a marvel of twisty understatement here, delivering emotions that conceal as much as they reveal, and offering onion-like layers that invite repeat viewings in light of some of the film’s later revelations." - 09/15/2018 Variety


3 stars out of 4 -- "Glenn Close is subtly devastating....Close and Jonathan Pryce have crackling chemistry with each other, the two veteran actors enjoying snappy banter and enduring lacerating battles." - 08/17/2018 RogerEbert.com


"Made by adults for adults, THE WIFE is an intimate drama that offers an inside look at a marriage and the dark bargains couples sometimes have to make with each other." - 08/15/2018 Los Angeles Times


"THE WIFE pulls off the not inconsiderable feat of spinning a fundamentally literary premise into an intelligent screen drama that unfolds with real juice and suspense." - 08/16/2018 New York Times


"Screenwriter Jane Anderson’s adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel is skillfully executed and well paced..." - 08/15/2018 A.V. Club


4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t’s Close who takes it to the next level with a powerfully implosive performance that doubles as an accumulation of details that define a marriage." - 08/14/2018 Rolling Stone
