A big secret, slowly revealed

It’s a truism that outsiders can never really know what goes on inside a marriage. Here’s a movie to illustrate that idea – “the wife” in question, played by Glen Close, is married to a famous author who has just been awarded a prestigious literary prize. Unfolding over the short time starting when news of the prize breaks, and the journey to Sweden to accept it, a family’s secrets are unraveled in all their complexity. See this film for its intelligent writing and stunning performances.
