Films By The Falls U-Picked A Flick -- THE WIFE
Films by the Falls audience members worked with the Kawartha Lakes Film Circuit last month to choose the movie that will be screened on April 30th at the popular local TIFF film circuit movie series.
From a choice of 5 films, you voted to see “The Wife” from swedish director Björn Runge, and starring Academy Award nominated Glenn Close in the title role.
After nearly forty years of marriage, JOAN and JOE CASTLEMAN (Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce) are complements: Where Joe is brash, Joan is shy. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man’s Wife, keeping the household running smoothly, the adult children in close contact, and Joe’s pills dispensed on schedule. At times, a restless discontentment can be glimpsed beneath Joan’s smoothly decorous surface, but her natural dignity and keen sense of humor carry her through the rough spots.
THE WIFE is adapted from the Meg Wolitzer novel of the same name.
