Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) 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.
The Wife, also starring Christian Slater, Max Irons, Annie Starke and Elizabeth McGovern is released in UK cinemas 28 September 2018. Filmed on location in Glasgow.
