The Wife

3 years, 3 months ago at Feb 8 17:54
One of the blessings and obsessions of the cinematic eye is intensely observing the faces of great actors telegraphing conflicting emotions through the subtlest movements. It’s in the way a mouth may tighten while the eyes are trying to look soft and kind, or the terse body language that contrasts with the words coming out of the mouth. Sometimes it’s the silences that are filled with so much ... read more

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a solid cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, I really liked these 2 characters who both turned out to be quite complex and fairly well developed. Of course, the fact that Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce both gave some really strong performances also helped. Eventually, I’m not surprised that Close go... read more

Really Glenn Close make it watchable and almost believable, a stron woman hiding the fact of being the real Nobel for the sake of.. of what?, marriage?, discrimination?, love to that bastard of Pryce? .....
View all The Wife reviews
Joan and Joe remain complements after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man's wife. As Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since there was a solid cast involved, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, I really liked these 2 characters who both turned out to be quite complex and fairly well developed. Of course, the fact that Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce both gave some really strong performances also helped. Eventually, I’m not surprised that Close got another nomination for an Academy Award for her brilliant work in this movie, what is more bewildering is that she still didn’t get one following such a stellar career. Unfortunately, even though it was a blast to see Pryce and Close at the top of their game, to be honest, I didn’t care much about the story though. Basically, for a good while, you wonder what’s going on with this couple. A” read more

"This was a fine film and quite the literary feat. The story has a beautiful ebb and flow between the two leads and the events of their lives. Like poetry their emotions and clashings are reflected in the world they occupy. I liked the story a lot from the perspective of seeing them as two very fictional characters, being written Stranger Than Fiction style to make a beautiful, perfect tragedy. However I watched it with my boss at work and he thought it was the most romantic thing ever, and I'v"

" DVD- 1hr. 40min. First Viewing The biggest issue The Wife has is expectation; you expect it to go one way, and it does. The destination is telegraphed throughout the film, and it never does a whole lot to change that, or even make us think that it might. This isn't a killer, like it might be for most films, due to the fact that the film is exceptionally executed, with solid storytelling, subtle direction, and another powerhouse performance by Glenn Close (the cast is strong, including Close's d"
