Synopsis by Augustine Chay
Swedish director Björn Runge’s drama film is based on American writer Meg Wolitzer’s 2003 novel of the same name. Glenn Close stars as an ageing wife and mother accompanying her egotistical husband (Jonathan Pryce) on a trip to Stockholm to receive the Nobel Prize for Literature. Burdened by further evidence of her husband’s infidelities and the weight of her own unrealized literary ambitions, she refuses to play the role of a self-effacing and supportive wife any longer.
