THE WIFE

Behind any great man, there’s always a greater woman … and you’re about to meet her. It is crucial
you get to know this woman – many of us already do and don’t even realise it.
Joan Castleman (Glenn Close): a highly intelligent and still‐striking beauty ‐ the perfect devoted wife.
Forty years spent sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to fan the flames of her
charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his skyrocketing literary career. Ignoring his
infidelities and excuses because of his “art” with grace and humour.
Their fateful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises. And Joan’s 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.
The Wife is a poignant, funny and emotional journey; a celebration of womanhood, self‐discovery
and liberation.
Directed by Berlin Silver Bear‐winner, Björn Runge, The Wife is adapted by Jane Anderson from the
Meg Wolitzer novel of the same name. The film co‐stars Christian Slater, Max Irons, Harry Lloyd and
Annie Starke.
