The book and the film is about the long marriage between Joan and Joseph Castleman. He is a much-celebrated American novelist who, in the film, wins the Nobel Prize in Literature; in the book it is a made-up award called the Helsinki Prize, which I describe as slightly less grand than the Nobel but still hugely important. My older son is convinced that part of the reason I write novels is so I can make up the names of things like prizes, rock bands, television shows and breakfast cereals.
Together they travel to Europe for the ceremony. In both book and film, Joe Castleman is an unreconstructed narcissist who believes his own publicity. You know the type I mean: those advertisements for themselves, those sleepwalking giants, roaming the earth and knocking over other men, women, furniture, villages.
The film has no voice-over to stand in for a first-person narrative. Audiences are treated to the many, many shades of feeling that Close expresses, sometimes through the barest eye movement or slight lift or droop of a lip.
A breach of this expectation of fidelity is commonly referred to as adultery or extramarital sex. Sure, divorce creates a vacuum. Married for only 4 sweet years, she was left with her precious 3 year old daughter Ellie; Hannah is not coping well. And as a fellow Angeleno granted, from a more middle-class, more ethnic part of town. Dec 24, Jessica rated it it was ok. Hannah is a happily married year-old wife and mother. If you have a court date, write it here.
How does she do it? I kept wondering, just as people marvel at how fiction writers give characters that authentic human sense, somehow managing to whoosh life into them. Eliot poems.
She has a wonderful co-star in Jonathan Pryce, who plays Joe, but the pull of the movie, the true imperative, is with Joan, as the title tells us it should be. The Swedish director Bjorn Runge lets the camera linger not on Joe, where it has stayed for most of their life together, but on Joan.
