BIFF to screen Close drama

The Bermuda International Film Festival will screen drama The Wife at the next instalment of its monthly series, BIFF Flix.

It stars Glenn Close, who won a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture — Drama at this month's ceremony, and is nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress, for her performance.

After nearly 40 years of marriage, Joan and Joe Castleman (Ms Close and Jonathan Pryce) 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, 30-plus years later — a lifetime's shared compromises, secrets, betrayals, and mutual love.

The film is rated ‘R' by the Motion Picture Association of America.

It will screen at the Speciality Cinema in Hamilton next Wednesday at 6.30pm. Tickets, $15, are on sale now at www.ptix.bm. If available, tickets will also be sold on the door.

BIFF's film series screenings are held monthly at the Speciality Cinema featuring the best art house, foreign, documentary and independent films.

The 22nd edition of BIFF will be held March 10 to 17.
