    Early reactions are very promising for Glose. Hopefully, more reviews will follow soon.

    The Wife review – Glenn Close is unreadably brilliant as author’s spouse plunged in late-life crisis (5 stars)

    As the apparently-perfect wife of a Nobel prize-winning writer, Close gives arguably her best ever performance in an adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s novel

    Hope she and Pryce break through.

    She deserves to win a competitive one.

    It’s insane to me that someone like Glenn…..who is up there with Jessica Lange and Meryl doesn’t have an Oscar.

    I would die of happiness if she won. If the film takes off they better just give it to her. I want Sally Hawkins to win but if Glenn Close is as good as this review says she is Hawkins can wait.

    Well this is an interesting development……Close has the biggest narrative as one of the great American actresses who never won. Streep sort of overshadowed her generation by the longevity of her film career and a billion Oscar nominations, but if there was a trifecta for Streep’s generation, it’s probably be Close, Lange and Streep.

    If the reviews hold up and it has a distrubutor, maybe Close can finally get the Gold Man.

    It’s gonna end up on TV. Probably HBO or Lifetime. Just like Bernard and Doris. Or some small distributor will buy it and put it on VOD. Don’t throw rocks at me, I’m just realistic.

    Should I see it to make predictions on its chances of getting proper distribution? Be serious, not stan thinking.

    If it gets buzz, she is a winner.

    If The Wife ends up being released by the end of this year, Glenn Close will already be a part of a very crowded Best Actress race. Though if she gets nominated and loses, she’ll set a whole new record as the biggest-losing actress in Oscar history.

    They did beat her for their first and third Oscars.

    The women of Dangerous Liaisons need their justice.

    Meryl Streep beat Glenn Close on her last nomination.

    Screen Daily Review

    “Adapted from a book by Meg Wolitzer, this solid drama posits a situation in which the wife’s contribution turns out to be somewhat more integral to the work than simply providing a few cups of tea and words of praise here and there. But despite high quality performances from Close and Pryce, the film leaves us with question marks over the credibility of the central scenario.”

    “Though not formally daring and fairly conventional in its storytelling, this is a quality picture which should appeal to arthouse audiences in festivals and elsewhere. The presence of the always-excellent Close in a lead role will be a selling point particularly as her seething but self-possessed performance could conceivably gain her entry onto this year’s awards circuit.”
