The Wife - Sunday Cinema

January 27 4:30 to 6:15 pm

Behind any great man, there's always a greater woman - and you're about to meet her. 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. Their fateful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises where she ignores his infidelities and excuses because of his "art" with grace and humour. But, on the eve of Joe's Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel in a spectacular body of work, Joan reaches her breaking point. Based on the novel "The Wife" by Meg Wolitzer.
