Review: The Wife Directed by Björn Runge

The Wife; Director: Björn Runge; Release date: August 2018; Based on work by Meg Wolitzer

Film Shorts


Transparent to the point one can predict the entire plot within the first ten minutes yet engaging enough to hold the attention. The acting is the strong point, especially during the marital arguments. 

Since it's based on a novel, perhaps the symbolism is better represented there when it comes to gender dynamics.

Recommendation:  LOW-MEDIUM
