Six-time Oscar nominee Glenn Close delivers another strong performance as an intelligent woman who, while reevaluating her life, begins to question her role as a dutiful spouse in the trailer for the upcoming character-driven drama "The Wife."

Also starring Jonathan Pryce (Game of Thrones) and Christian Slater (Mr. Robot), the film is based on Meg Wolitzer's acclaimed novel that explores the evolution of a 40-year-plus marriage between a Nobel Prize-winning literary intellectual (Pryce) and his equally brilliant partner (Close) who had sacrificed her own writing career for his, but is now feeling a deep sense of regret.

Directed by Swedish filmmaker Bjorn Runge (Daybreak, Mouth to Mouth) and adapted for the screen by Emmy-winning writer Jane Anderson (Olive Kitteridge), and co-starring Harry Lloyd (STARZ's Counterpart) and Annie Starke (Albert Nobbs), "The Wife" will be released theatrically in Los Angeles and New York on August 3rd, with more cities to follow.

synopsis:
Joan Castleman (Glenn Close) is a highly intelligent and still-striking beauty -- the perfect devoted wife. Forty years spent sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to fan the flames of her charismatic husband Joe (Jonathan Pryce) and his skyrocketing literary career. Ignoring his infidelities and excuses because of his "art" with grace and humor. Their fateful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises and Joan's reached her breaking point. On the eve of Joe's Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel in a spectacular body of work, Joan's coup de grace is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career.‚ÄČTHE WIFE is a poignant, funny and emotional journey; a celebration of womanhood, self-discovery and liberation.
