Becky Young (Anti Diet Riot Club) and Honey Ross (The Body Protest) join Flixwatcher to review Becky’s choice The Wife. The Wife is a 2017 drama starring Glen Close and Jonathan Pryce, directed by Björn Runge and based on the novel of the same name by Meg Wolitzer. Pryce plays Jonathan Castleman, a celebrated author, so celebrated he receives the Nobel Prize and travels to Stockholm with his loyal wife Joanie (Close) to receive the honor. Through flashbacks we learn of their early years - he is the tutor and she is the student - their affair and subsequent relationship. It quickly transpires that it all may not be as it seems and Joanie’s stoic veneer begins to falter. The Wife is Close’s film - she won the Golden Globe Award, Screen Actors Guild Award and Critics' Choice Movie Award for Best Actress for her performance, and was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress and the BAFTA Award for Best Actress but lost out (was robbed!!) to Olivia Coleman. She is incredible and The Wife is worth watching for her alone.
