The Wife Movie - Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce

Plot synopsis:
“The Wife, with its wise and provocative tone, hinges on a revelation for Joan Castleman (Glenn Close), who is married to Joe (Jonathan Pryce), one of those men who think they own the world… but has no idea how to take care of himself or anyone else. He is also one of America’s pre-eminent novelists, about to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature; and the flawlessly gracious Joan, who has spent forty years ignoring her own literary talents to fan the flames of his career, has decided she’s had enough. The Wife reveals a famous marriage that is brought to breaking point.”

She should just ditch the old ungrateful man and go find a gigolo, lol.

Still no official release date.

Stay tuned for more updates.

The Wife Movie Teaser Poster

Behind any great man, there’s always a greater woman.

Plot synopsis:
“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 realize it.
Joan Castleman (Glenn Close): a still-striking beauty with impeccable credentials, the perfect alpha 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 humor.
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 grâce is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career.
She’s written every word.
The Wife is a poignant, funny and emotional journey; a celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation.”

The plot synopsis kind of sounds like the movie Big Eyes, doesn’t it?

Besides Glenn Close, the cast also includes Jonathan Pryce, Frances McDormand, Christian Slater, Max Irons, and Annie Starke.

The film has yet to get an official release date.

Plot synopsis:
“Joe Castleman (Pryce) is being given the Nobel Prize for Literature, and he and wife Joan (Close) couldn’t be happier. But from the moment the couple arrives in Stockholm, tensions rise. A nosy, insistent would-be biographer (Christian Slater, who also appears at this year’s Festival in The Summit) is loitering in the hotel lobby, an attractive young photographer opens old wounds regarding past indiscretions, and Joe and Joan’s son David (Max Irons), eternally irked at living in his father’s shadow, sulks through the celebrations. What’s more, with all the attention being paid to Joe’s long career, the normally shy Joan is pushed uncomfortably into the spotlight, where long-kept secrets are in danger of being illuminated.”
