Glenn Close impresses in a timeless story about the supportive wife

Director: Björn Runge. With: Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Max Irons, Christian Slater, Annie Starke, Karin Franz Körlof, Johan Widerberg, Jan Mybrand.

DRAMA. It is 1992. Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce) has been difficult to fall asleep. He is an acclaimed author as waiting for the phone to call dawn. Joe is the favorite to receive the Nobel prize in literature. His wife, Joan (Glenn Close) soothes him with many years ' experience of support and support.

the Phone rings in the nice house on the coast of Connecticut. Stockholm calling. He has received the prize.

the Film follows the spouses of the celebration at home, the trip to Sweden and everything that happens up to this day, in the city Hall on 10 december, the nobel Banquet in the Blue hall.

There will be many congratulations and tributes. Where are the couple's two adult children, the pregnant daughter Susannah and son David (Max Irons), who himself is struggling to become a writer and hope in the father's praise. All the time is mrs. Castleman in the background. We look at Glenn Close miner and thoughts that it is something that irritates her.

In the flashbacks it is shown how the couple met. Joe taught then at the university, was married with a small daughter. Joan was his student, and showed an unusual skrivarbegåvning. It is 1958 and the world shows that the demand for female writers is not large. As a young man played Joan of Annie Strong, the daughter of Glenn Close.

the Film switches between the couple's first years together and the days leading up to the Nobel prize is awarded. It is becoming more and more tense atmosphere when Joan sees how everyone fjäskar for the spouse. When he flirts with the photographer Linnea (Karin Franz Körlof), which monitors his stockholm visit, reminded the wife of former otroheter.\\nChristian Slater plays a stubborn man who wants to write the great author's biography. He tries to get Joan to uncover the truths about her husband's writing. He has read the ancient texts, and interviewed Joe's first wife.

finally explode everything into a confrontation.

Meg Wolitzers novel, which the movie is based on, is about a fine prize for literature awarded in Helsinki. To change it to the Nobel prize is a prudent sharpening. ”The wife” moves around a wintery Stockholm, sweden with photos from the town Hall and the Grand hotel. Chockväckning with Lucia.

Glenn Close makes one of his best roles. Björn Runges well-made film has plenty of talented actors who create a strong intensity. Timeless about a woman who get tired of the old-fashioned role of the outside world to give her.\\n
