The Wife

Joan and Joe remain complements after nearly 40 years of marriage. Where Joe is casual, Joan is elegant. Where Joe is vain, Joan is self-effacing. And where Joe enjoys his very public role as the great American novelist, Joan pours her considerable intellect, grace, charm and diplomacy into the private role of a great man's wife. As Joe is about to be awarded the Nobel Prize for his acclaimed and prolific body of work, Joan starts to think about the shared compromises, secrets and betrayals.

In the Gloaming

In this drama that marks the directorial debut of Christopher Reeve, 33-year-old AIDS sufferer Danny (Robert Sean Leonard) returns to his parents' home in the New York suburbs to spend his final days. While his father, Martin (David Strathairn), finds it difficult to accept his son's sexuality, and his self-concerned sister, Anne (Bridget Fonda), avoids the issue, his mother, Janet (Glenn Close), forges a deeper and more honest relationship with her dying son.
