  • 4 stars Very well acted idea, but it gets too predictable past a certain point. If nothing, just watching Glenn Close and Jonathan Price is worth the time it takes to watch.
  • 5 stars Quiet and powerful film about the marriage of a Nobel Prize winner and his wife, Glen Close. She should win the Oscar for this subtle and exquisite performance. I suspect there will be women who will look at their own marriages after seeing this film. Beautifully filmed, great script and fine actor. Highly recommend it.
  • 5 stars Powerful and gripping. Early part of movie is slow and deliberate until it builds to a ferocious heart stopping climax. Not hard to understand all the accolades that Close has received. Pryce and all the performers are terrific. Fine script and wonderful direction. You have to give it time to unfold but if you do you won’t be disappointed. One of the best of the year.
  • 4 stars his is a terrific movie and captures the nuance of a complex relationship. Relationships generally tend to be complex. Both Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce are fabulous in the lead roles. I have two big problems with the movie. 1) Glenn Close is too damn old, and LOOKS too damn old to match the storyline. Her character, Joan was a student who fell for her married professor (Pryce). He's gotta be at a minimum of 5 years older than her, but it looks like the opposite. When the Christian Slater character was flirting with her, it was creepy. She's 71, FFS!!! Can't tell you about 2) without giving away too much, but the basic premise of the film is implausible. Very much so. Still...…………………………………….81/100
  • 4 stars Finally a grown up movie, no violence, slashing, blood or gore, just people, relationships and acting. There was excessive language, which was 't necessary, all in all, good drama.
  • 4 stars Very good movie with an all too common theme of women making moves while pushing men forward for all the acknowledgment of said moves.
  • 5 stars The Wife is an excellent story about a wife who" was a silent kingmaker". The story started in the 50's when her disorganized college professor husband needed her badly. Unfortunately, some issues still ring true in these modern times. Glen Close is superb!
  • 5 stars The story was riveting.
  • 4 stars I really enjoyed this film. Such a treat to watch good acting. Glenn Close deserves an Oscar nomination.
  • 4 stars This was an excellent drama with superior acting by Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce. It is not a film for people with limited attention spans or the uneducated. It is a great depiction of how some women will forego their careers for less talented husbands. It is well worth seeing. Glenn Close deserves an Oscar nomination for her performance. I do recommend this film!
