The word on the street was that I absolutely had to watch The Wife because it was so good.
Sadly, it was so far short of its billing that I even spied Mrs W dropping off.
This is another film which continues the trend set by The Happy Prince and A Star Is Born in that its storyline doesn't match the high quality of its acting.
I had such high hopes when both of us were giggling along to Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce dancing on a bed like schoolchildren in the initial scenes of The Wife.
Their characters, Joan and Joe Castleman were celebrating him being awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
However, their happiness is short-lived and, as The Wife, progresses the more the cracks in their marriage become obvious.
Levers for their discontentment include their son (Max Irons) who is desperate to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious father who has little time or desire to give him recognition.
Meanwhile, Christian Slater plays a sleazy writer who plans a biographical hatchet job on Castleman and, surprisingly, earns the ear of his wife and son.
But most of all, it is the Nobel prize and the accompanying celebratory palaver which threatens to cleave husband and wife apart.
The Wife is a good-looking film. Its plush surroundings and fine clothes reflect people who have, to the outside world, made it.
However, it centres on growing niggles between a long-term married couple and they are less appealing.
Therefore, when there are supposedly big reveals, there is a risk the audience might not be fully engaged.
That certainly goes for Mrs W. who tends to find cinematic matrimonial strife tedious.
I sympathise and am surprised to report that, despite the best efforts of Close and Pryce, I don't think Björn Runge's The Wife will stay long the memory.

Reasons to watch: High-quality cast
Reasons to avoid: Its story didn't grab as much as expected.

Laughs: Two
Jumps: None
Vomit: None
Nudity: None
Overall rating: 6/10

Director quote - Björn Runge: "Glenn and Jonathan wanted to challenge each other, they surprised each other and things would happen that we never planned and from there, you’d take it to the next level."

The big question - Why base life on lies?
