Saturday 15th February    

Starring: Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Max Irons
Approx. running time (inc. adverts): 109 mins

The Wife - FESTIVUE at the Festival Drayton Centre

A wife questions her life choices as she travels to Stockholm to see her husband receive the Nobel Prize for Literature.


Behind any great man, there's always a greater woman - and you're about to meet her. Joan Castleman (Glenn Close): a highly intelligent and still-striking beauty - the perfect devoted wife. Forty years spent sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to fan the flames of her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his skyrocketing literary career. Ignoring his infidelities and excuses because of his "art" with grace and humour. Their fateful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises. And Joan's reached her breaking point. On the eve of Joe's Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel in a spectacular body of work, Joan's coup de grace is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career.
