Joan Castleman is a highly intelligent, middle-aged, but still-striking beauty – the perfect devoted wife. Forty years spent sacrificing her own talent, dreams and ambitions to fan the flames of her charismatic husband, Joe, and his skyrocketing literary career, ignoring his infidelities and excuses because of his “art” with grace and humour. Their fateful pact has built a marriage upon uneven compromises, and Joan's reached her breaking point. On the eve of the awarding of Joe’s Nobel Prize for Literature, the crown jewel in a spectacular body of work, Joan’s coup de grace is to confront the biggest sacrifice of her life and secret of his career.

Based on (novel) by Meg Wolitzer.
