The Wife (I) (2017)
Elizabeth McGovern: Elaine Mozell
Elaine Mozell : The public can't stomach bold prose from a woman.
Elaine Mozell : Don't ever think that you can get their attention.
Young Joan : Whose?
Elaine Mozell : The men. Who write the reviews. Who run the publishing houses. Who edit the magazines. The ones who decide who gets to be taken seriously, who gets to be put up on a pedestal for the rest of their lives.
Young Joan : A writer has to write.
Elaine Mozell : A writer has to be read, honey.
