January 29, 2019         The Wife (2018) Starring Glenn Close & Jonathan Pryce

That critics are predicting a seventh Oscar nomination for Close is not surprising, so nuanced is her performance as the dutiful wife of a writer who has just been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.  As the couple jets off to Stockholm for the awards ceremony, it is clear that something is amiss.  While flashbacks to their early years together provide some of the clues, the ending is a stunning revelation.
