John David Washington,
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. Ignoring his infidelities and excuses because of his "art" with grace and humour. 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 grace is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career.Written by

To say that this is a difficult film to like is an understatement. It is a challenge to watch any dysfunctional family spat for a few minutes let alone to pay to sit through nearly two hours of humorless dialogue while Glen Close broods throughout in endless close-ups. She will most likely get an Oscar nomination but after seeing the film you will, like me, wonder why. There is nothing uplifting, inspirational or redeeming in this film. There is zero chemistry between Close and Price and it shows in the final edit. The talents of Christian Slater are wasted. The relationships are actually painful to watch and none of the characters are either likable nor do they generate any empathy or sympathy from the audience. When the film ended we all just sat in stunned silence, stunned that we were deceived into believing this might be a good movie.
