A Writer or a Wife? The Tales We Tell

    • TV & Film

In this episode of The Tales We Tell, Clara Cook is joined by writer and podcaster Sarah Blair to discuss the film The Wife. We examine the role of the Wife in her marriage to her prize-winning husband, the concept of the mental load, who earns the money and who brings up the children and how a woman's talent can be exploited in a patriarchal society. We ask if The Wife is a realistic cinematic portrayal of a marriage in crisis.
