After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman (Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce) are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. When Joe wins the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, the carefully established dynamic of their marriage is jeopardised. 

The Wife interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a long and complex marriage.  Glen Close is magnificent, and this may be the best role in her 'acclaimed and prolific body of work'!  Admire and enjoy!

We are delighted to have actor Alix Wilton Regan - the couple's daughter in the film - along with producer Piers Tempest for a Q&A on Wed 17 Oct. 

And on Mon 15 Oct we hold a Bucks Fizz & Cake Birthday Celebration for our Carers & Babies group.
