Joe Castleman is being given the Nobel Prize for literature, which unavoidably puts his wife Joan into the spotlight. Joan is stoic and supportive as the woman behind the great author, but once the couple arrives in Stockholm, things begin to unravel. The story is a procession of scenes from a marriage, played with precision and verve by the excellent cast of Glenn Close, Jonathan Price, and Christian Slater.
