Wife Watching 2
But rarely has her ability to tell two stories with a single look been more astutely employed than in this elegantly melancholy portrait of a marriage in crisis.
Many Japanese Look for a Shift to Female Heirs to the Throne
Close plays Joan Castleman, steadfast partner of celebrated author Joseph Jonathan Pryce , whom we first meet on the eve of his Nobel prize win in When the early morning phone call comes, Joe insists that his wife pick up the extension to share the news of his victory. We watch her listening to the announcement in closeup, a shifting ocean of pride, regret, astonishment, and I won the Nobel!
Joan is evidently proud of her husband, and performs dutiful service on their subsequent trip to Stockholm. Meanwhile, wannabe biographer Nathaniel Bone Christian Slater, oozing leather-jacketed slime circles the Castleman family like a shark, scratching away at what he believes to be a deep-seated malaise. Significantly, Joe only uses male pronouns he, him to describe writers, even when addressing a classroom of female students.
Pryce is excellent as the narcissist who quotes James Joyce like a stuck record, and whose once-lovable quirks signing his name on a walnut have become wearisome habits. Yet perhaps I had always known exactly where this tale was leading. Facebook Twitter Pinterest. So much can be conveyed through a husband's use of the phrase "The Wife".
It might be used as a derisive avatar or a cartoon nagger but not a respected equal. It is at this level that The Wifeexerts its power to show how patriarchy can entrap a willing victim until its innate fragility is exposed.

Yet a simple exit from the marriage is not easy, as Joe and Joan really love each other. Excellent filming, a clever script, uncluttered editing, and a nomination-worthy performance by Close gives this film a clear voice for the demographic it addresses. The feminist discourse for older women speaks in a different filmic language than what is current for others, so this is not a film for all. But its laser-precise message is targeted at everyone.
