The Wife

Loading...
After nearly forty years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman are complements. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as Great American Novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm, and diplomacy into the private role of Great Man's Wife. Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work. Joe's literary star has blazed since he and Joan first met in the late 1950s. The Wife interweaves the story of the couple's youthful passion and ambition with a portrait of a marriage, thirty-plus years later--a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love.

Hannah Arendt

In the award-winning HANNAH ARENDT, the sublime Barbara Sukowa reteams with director Margarethe von Trotta for a brilliant new biopic of the influential German-Jewish philosopher and political theorist.

Official Selection at the **Toronto International Film Festival** and the **New York Jewish Film Festival**. Winner of Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role (Barbara [...]

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

This **Oscar-winning**, sparklingly original comedy casts Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren in three different stories set throughout Italy.
