Pizza Lunch and Movie: “The Wife”
13h, ICFO Blue Lecture Room

Why not do something different for lunch today? Join us for a pizza lunch while we watch this 2017 movie based on the novel “The Wife” by Meg Wolitzer. In it we are presented the complicated choices made by a talented writer balancing the goals of professional and personal fulfilment.

Movie Synopsis:
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.
