    • Excerpt: The Wife is lucky to sport one of the finest acting performances of 2018. It is sharply written and packed with tense emotions.

  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: The Wife is [Glenn Close’s] tour de force. If only it were up to her standards.
  • Glenn Dunks @ Flicks
    • Excerpt: Glenn Close is an island of genius amid this otherwise mediocre affair…
  • Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
    • Excerpt: Glenn Close masterfully conveys the nuance of a character that both loves and resents her companion in equal measure.
  • [New] | Jared Mobarak @ JaredMobarak.com
    • Excerpt: It’s a brilliant metaphor for the social and cultural disparity between genders that still exists and still somehow gets dismissed as farce.
  • Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
    • Excerpt: Close downplays the role of Joan Castleman brilliantly and rewrites the part of the long-suffering, subservient wife.
  • Frank Ochieng @ Screen Anarchy
    • Excerpt: Intelligent, psychologically suspenseful and resonate Runge’s template of union bliss gone amiss may very well finally lasso the veteran Close that Oscar statuette that has ducked and dodged her clutches throughout her distinguished career.
