Trailer: Bruce Dern and Lena Olin in ‘The Artist’s Wife’
Strand Releasing has dropped the first trailer for Tom Dolby’s The Artist’s Wife, starring Academy Award nominees Bruce Dern and Lena Olin.
With echoes of 45 Years and Still Alice, The Artist’s Wife tells the story of Claire (Lena Olin) lives a domestic life in the Hamptons as the wife of celebrated artist Richard Smythson (Bruce Dern). Once a promising painter herself, Claire now lives in the shadow of her husband’s illustrious career. While preparing work for his final show, Richard’s moods become increasingly erratic, and he is diagnosed with dementia. As his memory and behavior deteriorate, she shields his condition from the art community while trying to reconnect him with his estranged daughter and grandson from a previous marriage. Challenged by the loss of her world as she knew it, Claire must now decide whether to stand with Richard on the sidelines or step into the spotlight herself.
The Artist’s Wife is directed by Tom Dolby (Last Weekend), written by Dolby & Nicole Brending and Abdi Nazemian based on a story by Dolby. It’s produced by Mike S. Ryan (Junebug), Susanne Filkins (Little Woods), Tom Dolby and Abdi Nazemian (Call Me By Your Name).
Strand Releasing will first unveil the film in select New York City theaters on April 3 then Los Angeles on April 10. Here is the trailer.
