About this Film

The Wife

ODEON says...
Joan Castleman is ‘The Wife’ of a man with a hugely successful literary career – and for whose benefit she has spent forty years sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions.

She has ignored Joe’s infidelities for the sake of his career, and together they’ve built a marriage of uneven compromises. But on the eve of him winning the Nobel Prize for Literature, Joan has finally reached her breaking point.

Glenn Close stars as ‘The Wife’ in this critically-acclaimed drama, alongside Jonathan Pryce and Christian Slater.

More misandry

Reviewer: eeldergillDate: 2018-10-18

Misandry is commonplace nowadays and rather tiresome and unoriginal. Suitable for a girl's night out but advise men to steer clear.

Very moving

Reviewer: Anna2001Date: 2018-10-07

I found this film intriguing, tense and moving. The build up was slow but effective in building tension and developing the characters. Glenn Close's performance as the wife is particularly amazing.
