Well I think Glenn Close has done it. She found a role that will be her a well-deserved Oscar win. She plays the wife of a Nobel Prize winner. All you need to do is watch the close-ups of Glenn’s eyes and it will tell you everything you need to know about the character. She mesmerizes in a part that feels so richly alive you forget she is acting. We are in awe as this master craftsman weaves the twists and turns of the story. Jonathan Pryce matches her performance note for note. The film hits high points as the explosive melodrama builds to a crescendo. The adapted screenplay is superb.
