With her performance as the much put-upon wife Joan, behind a pompous Nobel prize-winning author, the Golden Globe nominated Glenn Close is deservedly back in the awards race. Travelling with her strutting husband (Jonathan Pryce) to become the Laureate, Joan is ever supportive, while secretly beginning to question the choices she has made to enable his success. Close is marvellous, stoic and measured, we see her transform from early ambivalence to her own career, to rage when she realises the truth.
