A Good Wife Serbia/Bosnia/Croatia 94 mins
A dutiful woman is struck with the dilemma of a lifetime when she uncovers a devastating secret from her husband’s past.
Middle-aged Milena (Mirjana Karanovic) is a devoted wife and mother living in Belgrade. Her contented existence is upended when she’s diagnosed with cancer and almost simultaneously discovers an old VHS tape that shows footage of her husband’s involvement in war crimes. Suddenly, she must face the twin realities of her cancer, and her husband’s secret.
Karanovic not only plays the titular role, she also co-wrote the screenplay and takes the director’s chair for the first time. A human rights activist, Karanovic brings genuine warmth, insight and humour to the film, resulting in a subtle, intimate character study that’s both courageous and compassionate.
