Best actress?

Six-time Oscar runner-up Glenn Close has done such good work for so long, it’s easy to take her for granted. “The Wife” (⋆⋆⋆½, rated R), a handsome production that delicately skewers literary-world pretensions and Great Man mythmaking, offers viewers a chance to observe one of the finest actresses of her generation working at the very top of her shrewd, subtle, superbly self-controlled game. Like her character, she will not be ignored when the Oscars are awarded Feb. 24.
