Debut Trailer for Meg Wolitzer Adaptation THE WIFE with Glenn Close & Jonathan Pryce

THE WIFE is an upcoming drama film directed by Swedish filmmaker Björn Runge (Daybreak) and adapted by Jane Anderson from a novel of the same name by Meg Wolitzer. Starring Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce, the film premiered at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) and generating Oscar buzz for Close.

Joan Castleman (Close) is 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 (Pryce) and his skyrocketing literary career. Ignoring his infidelities and excuses because of his “art” with grace and humor. 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.
