Iconic and beautiful US actress Glenn Close is elegant and impressive as Joan Castleman, the long-enduring, ever-compromising and supportive wife of egotistical writer Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce) who is about to accept a Nobel Prize for Literature.  Then a sycophantic minor journalist begins scratching away at the truth behind the unlikeable, arrogant (and dallying) literary doyen.  It makes a dark contrast to the accolades he receives from the fawning literati.  Partly set in Stockholm, the film is directed by Bjorn Runge with a screenplay by Jane Anderson from the award-winning novel by Meg Wolitzer.  Younger versions of Joan and Joe delve into the dark secrets of Joan’s life of compromise– typical for women of her time.  Glenn Close’s performance is unforgettable:  you can’t take your eyes off her.
