Adrian Lyne Returns with ‘Silent Wife’

Posted June 19, 2016 by Eoin Friel in News

I’ve always been a fan of director Adrian Lyne who was a master of sexy thrillers throughout the 80’s and 90’s. Known for such raunchy tales as 9 and a 1/2 Weeks, Fatal Attraction, Indecent Proposal and his last movie Unfaithful, it suddenly went quiet from the director and I’ve been recently wondering what had happened to him.

Well, after doing a bit of research I found out he is coming back with a new film called Silent Wife starring Nicole Kidman; it’s a thriller based on A.S.A. Harrison’s 2013 novel about a woman who plots her husband’s murder after discovering he’s having an affair with a younger woman.

“I’m looking forward to working with Nicole Kidman, who I think is a marvelous actress,” said Lyne. “I saw a film called ‘Birth’ [Jonathan Glazer’s 2004 drama starring Kidman]…[and] I thought it was just staggering. I thought what she did with it — and the kid was extraordinary. I can’t imagine why [audiences] didn’t pile into the theaters to see it.”

Silent Wife also continues Lyne’s seeming obsession with telling stories about infidelity — Fatal Attraction, Indecent Proposal, Lolita and Unfaithful all tackle the subject to varying degrees — though he told me it’s not necessarily the “infidelity” element that attracts him to these projects.

“I think it’s more it being a love story, and obviously sexuality is part of that. I’m interested in how you would never believe that two people would be so hateful to each other, but still in a fucked up way love each other,” he said. “I’m interested in that. I’m not interested in sort of sexuality per se, but I am interested in the love story.
