The Wife

R ‧ 2017 ‧ 100 mins. ‧ CC ‧ DVS

   Joan and Joe remain complements after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where Joe (Jonathan Pryce) is casual, Joan (Glenn Close) is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man's wife.  As Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.

Coming Soon!

Mon. Sept. 17,  1:00 PM  

  A film version of the ballet Giselle. Filmed in a studio, using innovative editing and cinematography to go along with the choreography, this film stands out from filmed stage-performances.
