Joe Castleman (Jonathan Pryce) is a celebrated author, so renowned that he and his wife Joan (Close) are travelling to Sweden so that he may be awarded with the Nobel Prize for Literature. On their flight however they are dogged by a familiar figure – Nathaniel Bone (Christian Slater) is a journalist who has long been harassing Joe to agree to participate in a tell-all biography.
Joe brushes Bone off once again, but the hack’s conviction that he knows the secrets behind the Castlemans’ seemingly successful marriage causes Joan to reflect on her past: the literary ambitions of her own that she denied in order to become the greatest influence in her husband’s life, and the work she put in to support him in his success to the detriment of her own dreams. And maybe Joan no longer wants to be the silent, smiling wife, especially given what she knows and has never told.
