14A, coarse language, mature theme
Dir: Björn Runge, UK/Sweden, 100 min. Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Alix Wilton Regan, Christian Slater, Elizabeth McGovern

“Glenn Close is a magnificent screen presence as Joan, the wife of a Nobel prize-winning novelist Joseph (Jonathan Pryce). The film opens with the couple getting word that he’s won the prize and all appears well. But in the run-up to the awards ceremony in Stockholm, it’s clear that something’s simmering beneath Joan’s quiet, supportive demeanour. It could be any number of things. Joe hasn’t been attentive to his children, including his aspiring writer son. He’s had his affairs—and later looks to have another with the Nobel’s in-house photographer. And a writer hoping to pen Joe’s biography (Christian Slater at his weaselly best) is pestering them mercilessly. Jane Anderson’s screenplay, from Meg Wolitzer’s novel, keeps us guessing and reveals the answer to the mystery with a strong sense of pace. Pryce plays the literary lion with gusto, while revealing pathetic weakness. But Close carries the pic, letting her silence speak volumes and then exploding with a righteous rage when she’s had enough.”—Susan G. Cole, Now Magazine. “An intelligent screen drama that unfolds with real juice and suspense.”—The New York Times
