This film left me feeling incredibly frustrated with its wasted potential. The Wife tries so hard to tell a compelling story about marriage, relationships, writers and writing, but it fails to deliver on all accounts as the script feels overly melodramatic and the plot becomes very predictable very quickly. There are also numerous scenes that drag on and on for no apparent reason, as if the actors were told to delay their lines and just stand there to make the scenes lengthier. [spoiler]The character the audience is rooting for is definitely, as intended, Glenn Close's,[/spoiler] but that's easy when all the other characters are unlikable, even on the verge of unbearable. So if you want to see Glenn Close acting really well, then sure, go see the movie and tune out everything else.

Phenomenal performance by Glenn Close. Good movie, good message, nothing really spectacular.

Glenn Close's performance outshines the rest of the tepid feeling the movie gave me. I liked Christian Slater in his role too, but I think it could have gone a bit... deeper, ironically enough.

I was trying to remember the last time I saw Glenn Close in a movie and had to look it up. Man it’s been a long time. It seems to me that when Judi Dench came on scene Glenn Close disappeared but maybe that’s not correct. Either way this is very much a role that I could see Dench playing. Close never quite hit the mark on the character, I felt. I wanted her to be a bit ‘more’ ..more of what I’m not sure. The son character became tiresome and snivelling. An hour after watching now and I think just meh.
