Starring Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce, the critically-acclaimed drama The Wife is coming to DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download on 28 January 2019.
The film is directed by Björn Runge (Happy End) and is based on the best-selling book by Meg Wolitzer.
Joan Castleman (Close) has spent forty years sacrificing her talent, dreams and ambitions to support her charismatic husband Joe (Pryce) and his lauded literary career.
Ignoring his infidelities and excuses for the sake of his art, she has tolerated his behaviour with acceptance and humour. After a lifetime of uneven compromises, Joan and Joe’s marriage has reached the moment of truth.
On the eve of Joe’s Nobel Prize for Literature, Joan confronts the biggest sacrifice of her life and some long-buried secrets.
The Wife is a poignant, funny and emotional journey; a celebration of womanhood, and self-discovery in later life.
With a stunning cast including Max Irons (The Riot Club, Woman In Gold, Condor), Annie Starke (We Don’t Belong Here), Harry Lloyd (The Theory Of Everything, The Riot Club), Elizabeth McGovern (The Commuter, Downton Abbey) and Golden Globe winner Christian Slater (Mr Robot, True Romance and Heathers).
The film is being released by Lionsgate U.K and Picturehouse Entertainment.
