Meryl Streep keeping it up
My theory about Meryl Streep is that her acting talent isn't matched by her ability to pick a script. It's as though she's the Hillary Clinton of the acting world, all wonky and programmed and overly topical. She's a politician in an artist's profession. Her political mindedness is one reason she's in so few films that haven't had legs historically. Thus we come to her upcoming movie, which delves into a campus shooting. Some things never change.
