In 1992, literary lion Jonathan Pryce heads to Stockholm to receive a Nobel Prize, wife Glenn Close by his side.

The pair couldn’t be more different. He’s brash but insecure; she’s diffident and calm. For over 30 years, the partnership has worked. The trip, however, brings all manner of secrets, resentments and rage to the surface.

This enjoyably slippery tale of literary ambition, male ego and female self-effacement boasts a terrific, superbly nuanced performance from Close and an enjoyably ripe one from Pryce.
