We’re very excited for the release of the film adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel about womanhood, self-discovery and liberation. In cinemas 28 September and don’t miss specials preview screenings at select cinemas on 26 September. Book tickets now at www.thewife.film.
The Wife tells the story of Joan Castleman (Glenn Close), who has spent forty years sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to support her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his stellar literary career. Ignoring infidelities and excuses made in the cause of his art, she has put up with his behaviour with undiminished grace and humour. The foundations of their marriage have, however, been built upon a set of uneven compromises and Joan has reached a turning point.
On the eve of Joe’s Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel rewarding a spectacular body of work, Joan will confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and some long-buried secrets.
