Michael Schulman in The New Yorker about Björn Runge's movie "The Wife":

'As a feminist parable, “The Wife” has plenty to say about the ways in which women are expected to be self-effacing, while men are taught to bask in achievement—even ones that aren’t entirely theirs.'

"The Wife" with all its flaws is much more than a feminist parable, Glenn Close's performance alone makes it worth watching.

But there's more: basking in achievement is not always the fastest way to fame and respect. The wife (Glenn Close) recognizes that she is a kingmaker, and the kingmaker should never be underestimated.
