Cinema @ Scotland St. Presents: The Wife
August 28, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:45 pm
Glenn Close garnered an Academy Award nomination for Best Actress for her subtle, layered performance as Joan Castleman, the wife who has sacrificed her own talent and ambition in favor of her husband’s literary career… until now. It’s the night before Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce) accepts the Nobel Prize for Literature and Joan has reached her breaking point.
“…the veteran actress is a marvel of twisty understatement here, delivering emotions that conceal as much as they reveal, and offering onion-like layers that invite repeat viewings in light of some of the film’s later revelations.” — Andrew Barker, Variety
