February 17, 2:00 & 7:00: THE WIFE
Great artists’ spouses often sacrifice their dreams for their mates’ careers, and Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) – a gifted writer – is no exception. But with her husband (Jonathon Pryce) about to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature, Joan’s long-simmering resentment begins to emerge as she undergoes a quietly powerful transition. This remarkable film is anchored by Close’s outstanding Golden Globe-winning performance. Christian Slater also stars. (2018), PG-13, 121 minutes.
