Sony Pictures has released a new poster and trailer for director Björn Runge’s adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel The Wife. The upcoming drama features a cast that includes Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Christian Slater, Max Irons, Elizabeth McGovern, Harry Lloyd, and Annie Stark; take a look here…

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.

‘The Wife’ Trailer: Glenn Close Longs for a More Literary Life in Meg Wolitzer Adaptation — Watch

Sony Pictures Classics has released the trailer for “The Wife,” Björn Runge’s adaptation of the Meg Wolitzer novel of the same name. Glenn Close stars as the title character, with Jonathan Pryce playing her husband; he’s a revered author, while she’s relegated to simply being, well, the wife. “It was probably one of the trickiest roles I’ve ever confronted,” Close recently told Vanity Fair. “I think it’s a situation that every woman in the audience can relate to, whether they’re of younger generations or not.”

At the beginning of the trailer, Pryce is told he’s been awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, an honor both he and Joan have apparently been happily anticipating for some time. In addition to bringing the couple to Sweden, the occasion reminds Close of her early years as a writer whose own aspirations took a backseat to those of her husband.

"Don't ever think that you can get their approval." Sony Pictures Classics has debuted an official trailer for an indie thriller titled The Wife, which first premiered at the Toronto and Zurich Film Festivals last fall.

Glenn Close stars as Joan Castleman, with Jonathan Pryce as her husband, and a cast including Max Irons, Christian Slater, Harry Lloyd, Alix Wilton Regan, and Michael Benz. Described as "a poignant, funny and emotional journey; a celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation."

'Counterpart' Season Finale: 3 Theories That Could Change the Game of the Starz Drama

[This story contains spoilers through the first nine episodes of Starz's Counterpart.]

"Love the lie."

On Starz's breakout spy-fi drama Counterpart, that one phrase sums up the state of practically all of the interpersonal relationships presented in the J.K. Simmons starrer. After all, any show dealing with espionage is all about secrets, lies, obfuscation and what happens when those secrets and lies are uncovered.

Case in point: Peter Quayle (Harry Lloyd), a highly placed leader in the U.N. spy organization called the Office of Interchange, must decide how to handle the revelation that his wife Clare (Nazanin Boniadi), the mother...

‘Counterpart’ Shocker: The Cast and Creator Break Down the Starz Espionage Thriller’s Biggest Twist Yet

‘Counterpart’ Shocker: The Cast and Creator Break Down the Starz Espionage Thriller’s Biggest Twist Yet
[Editor’s note: The following contains spoilers for the “Counterpart” Season 1, Episode 6, “Act Like You’ve Been Here Before.”]

When a show starts off establishing a world with an entire parallel existence, there aren’t many other places to go to shock an audience. But at the end of Episode 6 of “Counterpart,” the show delivered its most seismic twist so far.

An hour that saw the brutal end of jovial undercover Alpha butcher shop owner Heinrich, the true identity of Alexander Pope’s man on the inside, and some creative use of pangrams also brought the series’ most mysterious character into focus. Turns out that Clare, the middle-class supermarket shopper also doubling as an envoy for Baldwin the assassin, is actually the wife of Peter Quayle, Director of Strategy for the series’ inter-reality spy agency.

In the waning moments of the season’s sixth hour, Quayle (Harry Lloyd) finally puts the pieces together, realizing that the search for the mole inside Strategy has led him the one person he never suspected.

TV Review: J.K. Simmons and Olivia Williams in ‘Counterpart’ on Starz

TV Review: J.K. Simmons and Olivia Williams in ‘Counterpart’ on Starz
“Counterpart” is quite likely to appeal to fans of a few different genres. A smartly constructed and atmospheric spy thriller, “Counterpart’s” first allegiance is to hushed conversations, dangerous secrets, and the kind of shadowy alleys and darkened hallways traversed by secret agents.

But “Counterpart” is also a work of speculative fiction, and it uses its graceful and well-modulated sci-fi elements to ask thoughtful questions about missed opportunities, identity, and what happens when people get unexpected chances to remake their lives.

And if that weren’t enough, “Counterpart” is also a handsome, character-driven serial for adults. It avoids many of the traps of the Prestige Drama category: It’s brisk, sardonic, and has moments of bittersweet sadness, but it’s not enamored of predictable grimness or uninspired transgression. And whatever genre you gravitate to, “Counterpart” is made immensely enjoyable by excellent performances from J.K. Simmons and Olivia Williams, among others.

Counterpart: Why You Really Need to Give This New Drama a Chance

If you're a fan of character-driven dramas, spy thrillers, or sci-fi adventures, look no further than Starz's new show Counterpart, which is all three rolled into one. The series premieres on Jan. 21 - allow me to convince you to tune in for it. J.K. Simmons plays Howard Silk, a cog in the United Nations building in Berlin, Germany. He works for the Office of Interchange, which involves going into a little booth and exchanging cryptic phrases with someone on the other side of a plate of glass. In 30 years of working there, Howard has never really questioned his position or work, but that all changes when an assassin starts killing people in his world - and it turns out she's a "counterpart" from a second version of our world. Three decades ago, the world split off into a second world (called "Prime") that runs alongside our world, with duplicates of every person.

Review: Games of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season

  • Comicmix
With the news this week that the eighth and final season of HBO’s Game of Thrones won’t air until 2019 comes just as Games of Thrones: The Complete Seventh Season arrives on disc tomorrow. The digital editions have been out for some time and if any season bears repeat watching it is this one.

One advantage to the bloodshed and character demises over the last few seasons has meant that the survivors all get larger roles, meatier scenes, and characters we’ve longed to see together actually share the screen. The episodes are longer, but there are fewer of them to enjoy. Perhaps the biggest downside to this is that events have had to be telescoped, stretching and then breaking the show’s internal logic.

No matter how the producers spin it, there was really no way for episode six to work once the White Walkers surrounded our hardy band of warriors.
