Must-See or Skippable? Ranking The 2019 Oscar Movies
FAIRLY SKIPPABLE: The Wife
Look, The Wife is not a movie anyone will remember in 5 years. Glenn Close has given many Oscar-worthy performances, and she’s quite good in The Wife. The reason to watch this movie is so you understand that when she takes home the Oscar. Otherwise, the film is fairly superfluous.
All in all, Glenn Close’s various acceptance speeches have been more exciting. That’s not to say The Wife is bad, necessarily. Instead, it’s merely a reminder that a great actress can shine wherever she’s working. Glenn Close is one of those great actresses, and in a few weeks, she’ll have the ultimate recognition of that.
