Since the screening of The Wife in August, Glenn Close has been nominated for Best Actress and her chances are good.  Here is a look back at Hollywood on the Potomac’s interviews and event coverage.

 

“Jane Anderson (based on the novel by Meg Wolitzer) wrote the screenplay more than 14 years ago,” Glenn Close told an attentive audience at a private screening of The Wife at AMC’s Georgetown Theater. “It was a movie that Hollywood obviously didn’t want to make. So, 14 years later, I guess it probably was this wonderful woman who was one of the main producers – Rosalie Swedlin. I was sent the script, and I liked it. I was intrigued by it. I had never played anybody like that before. Then, it fell apart, and then it came back together, like every independent film does. My definition of an independent film is a film that almost doesn’t get made.”
