The Wife - UK Premiere
Adapted from the book by Meg Wolitzer, Film4 Summer Screen at Somerset House hosts the UK Premiere and actors Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Alix Wilton Regan and director Björn Runge attend the red carpet. Premiere Scene’s Claire Bueno and Mike Jonas were keen to interview the stars about this brooding family drama.
Join us as we ask Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Alix Wilton Regan, Björn Runge about the hugely layered characters, a story with so much bubbling under the surface and an unhealthy relationship of co-dependency.
