Secrets lie between the lines...

Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) is 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 brilliant literary career, ignoring his infidelities and excuses with grace and humour. Their faithful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises and on the eve of Joe being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, Joan reaches her breaking point, to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life. Adapted from the Meg Wolitzer novel of the same name, The Wife is a poignant, emotional journey of secrets, self-discovery and liberation.

"Close is so extraordinary — at once charming and inscrutable, alternately warm and withering, tender but full of contained fury," The Hollywood Reporter

"Glenn Close is a tremendous actress," Variety
