Behind any great man, there’s always a greater woman; Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) is the perfect devoted wife. Forty years spent sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambition to fan the flames of her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his brilliant literary career, ignoring his infidelities and excuses with grace and humour.
Their faithful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises and on the eve of Joe being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, Joan reaches her breaking point, to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life. The Wife is an emotional journey of secrets, self-discovery and liberation.
