Lena Olin, Juliette Rylance and Bruce Dern are the stars of new Tom Dolby directed drama The Artist’s Wife.
It’s a story in which Claire (Olin) finds herself in the middle of a late-life crisis. A crisis that begins when her renowned abstract artist husband (Dern) is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease before he completes the paintings for his final show.
Almost right away I thought of The Wife (2018) because both movies are about wives who sacrifice plenty in order to prioritise their husband’s careers.
I’m curious about what Dolby’s film has to say about Alzheimer’s and the creative person. I also want to see this particular experience of the ever supportive wife.
Caryn West, Tonya Pinkins, Catherine Curtin, Stefanie Powers, Avan Jogia, Ravi Cabot-Conyers and Clare Louise Frost also star.
