Posted from Toronto on 9.14.17: “Glenn Close totally rules in Bjorn Runge‘s The Wife (Sony Classics, 8.3.). The film is strong and precisely written and wellcarved, and Close carries it along with costar Jonathan Pryce on a 60-40 basis. She brilliantly re-defines the familiar role of the discreet, classy, long-under-valued wife & partner of an ostensibly great man. Exquisite poise, rich feeling, heart full of soul & regret, eyes of spirit and chrome steel. Close’s emoting demands Oscar cred. It’s a landmark performance with a great, angry, full-throttle climax. Close has a Best Actress nom in the bag.”
