How does the famous saying go? Behind every great man, there's a greater woman, and that is exactly the case in The Wife. Glenn Close is Joan Castleman, a highly intelligent and beautiful woman, and the perfect devoted wife. Forty years spent sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions in order to support her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his very successful literary career. She has overlooked infidelities and excuses because of his "art" with grace and humour. Their fateful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises. But Joan has eventually reached her breaking point. On the eve of Joe's Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel in a spectacular body of work, Joan's coup de grace is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career.

Nominated for an Oscar®and a BAFTA. Winner of the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for Glenn Close.

'Jonathan Pryce and Max Irons travel around Glenn Close like planets to her sun, notable planets in her orbit but out of her league, not just the actress but the character she creates with an enviable intensity.' Adrina Palmer, Irish Film Critic
