Synopsis

Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce star in this drama adapted from Meg Wolitzer's novel. When he learns he is to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature, award-winning author Professor Joe Castleman (Pryce/Harry Lloyd) is invited to Stockholm to collect the prize along with his supportive and devoted wife Joan (Close/Annie Starke). Having given up hopes of having a writing career of her own years before, Joan instead became the driving force behind her husband's success while also learning to deal with his inflated ego and numerous indiscretions with dignity and poise. However, when Joe ignores her advice about untrustworthy journalist Nathaniel Bone (Christian Slater), cracks in Joan's previously unwavering dedication finally begin to appear as Bone begins to pry into the secrets of their past.
