Preview, Glenn Close suffers in the shadow of a Nobel winner as “The Wife”

Here’s a peek inside the Nobel Prizes folded into a marital melodrama that pairs up Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce.

He’s the “Great Writer,” she’s the former student who married her teacher, but who was probably a talented writer in her own right — until the wedding.

Christian Slater is the reporter unpeeling the layers of their lives, and the nature of the relationship. Elizabeth McGovern is the mentor “The Wife” then “The Student” didn’t listen to.

“The Wife” goes into limited release Aug. 3, on the cusp of Awards Season.
