Storyline

Behind any great man, there's always a greater woman - and you're about to meet her. It is crucial you get to know this woman - many of us already do and don't even realise it. 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. The Wife is a poignant, funny and emotional journey; a celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation. Written by anonymous

Wost movie fo the year? Definitly Razzie material
16 August 2018 | by See all my reviews

I thought the PHANTOM THREAD was the worst movie of the year then I saw this pile of poop. Wow. It is like we give two 70 year old actors a script and say "now try to out-act each other!" It is obviously a play since the sets never change. If you can't sleep ... rent it. Guaranteed. Do people really live like this? Never being happy and blowing every nuance of every word the other says out of proportion? Sad little failure of an acting exercise.
