Behind the success of every man, there is a woman.
Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce) is awarded the greatest prize any author can receive – the Nobel Prize for literature. Together with his wife, Joan (Glen Close), he travels to Stockholm for the ceremony. It is there that tensions between them begin to rise. The amount of media attention and an intrusive journalist (Christian Slater) make Joan feel very uncomfortable. The new role she finds herself in begins bringing long-suppressed wounds to the surface… Based on a book of the same name by Meg Wolitzer, this motion picture by Swedish director, Björn Runge, is about an aging author and his wife who has stood by his side through thick and thin. The exquisite acting of Glen Close has been extolled by many critics as some of her best ever.
