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.

"Watching veteran actors get starring roles is almost always a pleasure. Especially when it’s ones who are often relegated to supporting roles these days, it’s quite pleasing to watch them receive a showcase. The Artist’s Wife is a clear example of this, allowing Bruce Dern and Lena Olin an almost blank canvas to paint on with their talents. The result is an acting clinic being put on by the pair of vets. The film itself has some highs and lows, but the two of them more than make up for the moments that fall’s well worth a watch." -Joey Magidson, Awards Radar
