The wife

7 yrs 96 minutes 2017 7.2

Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) has lived her whole life in the shadow of her husband. Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce) is an acclaimed novelist who just won the Nobel Prize in Literature. They travel with their son to Stockholm to receive the prize, but beneath the surface, Joan's patience begins to run out. For forty years she has ignored her own writing talents and fully supported her husband despite his infidelity. Him being celebrated for his achievement is the last straw and a confrontation becomes inevitable. Glenn Close was nominated for an Oscar for best female lead for her performance.
