Sony Pictures has released a new poster and trailer for director Björn Runge’s adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel The Wife. The upcoming drama features a cast that includes Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Christian Slater, Max Irons, Elizabeth McGovern, Harry Lloyd, and Annie Stark; take a look here…
The Wife, with its wise and provocative tone, hinges on a revelation for Joan Castleman, who is married to one of those men who think they own the world… but has no idea how to take care of himself or anyone else. He is also one of America’s pre-eminent novelists, about to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature; and the flawlessly gracious Joan, who has spent forty years ignoring her own literary talents to fan the flames of his career, has decided she’s had enough. The Wife reveals a famous marriage that is brought to breaking point.
The Wife is set for release on August 3rd in the US and on September 28th in the UK.
