In early 18th century England, a frail Queen Anne occupies the throne and her close friend, Lady Sarah, governs the country in her stead. When a new servant, Abigail, arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah.
The story of Dick Cheney, an unassuming bureaucratic Washington insider, who quietly wielded immense power as Vice President to George W. Bush, reshaping the country and the globe in ways that we still feel today.
One of the most celebrated war correspondents of our time, Marie Colvin is an utterly fearless and rebellious spirit, driven to the frontline of conflicts across the globe to give voice to the voiceless.
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
From the hotel room window in Stockholm you can see that it is snowing all the time, but outside shots only show just some last remains of snow in the city, where there should be a nice layer of fresh snow. See more »
The wife is a brilliant case study of love and all the complexities that accompany it, it truly captures something special that goes beyond our crude idea of a marriage, it explores that theme vigorously and carefully at the same time, the plot is so simple yet infinitely charming and gripping, I found myself quite immersed by the dialogue and how genuine they are, the credit for that goes to two legendary actors who performed flawlessly, to convey a higher meaning.
Glenn Close accompanied by Jonathan Pryce create an amazing piece of work, my aimless words won't do them justice as they were a marvelous treat, acting in its truest forms, raw and unfiltered.
The wife is a satisfying exploration into a world experienced by few but relatable by many in terms of love and pain, delicious acting, to say the least, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
