Cinema Screening


Secrets lie between the lines.

Behind any great man, there’s always a greater woman. Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) has spent forty years sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambition to support her charismatic, philandering husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his brilliant literary career. Their faithful pact reaches breaking point on the eve of his being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. The Wife is an emotional journey of self-discovery and liberation.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Unmissable.” – The Guardian

“[Glenn Close] gives one of the richest, most riveting and complicated performances of her career.” – The Hollywood Reporter
