*** How to be a Good Wife by Emma Chapman


The dark, claustrophobic How To Be a Good Wife stars an apparently mentally unbalanced wife who slowly realizes that her much older husband may not be the attentive man he wants to portray to the world. Nothing is quite what it seems in a story that develops and ends in half-told truths. The story reminded me of Room, albeit with a much darker ending. Not the most uplifting tale, but very well rendered, I thought.
