La Streep can do anything–except give a bad performance, it seems. From Sophie to Miranda Priestley to Julia Child and beyond, Meryl’s choice is to always do quality work brimming with wit and wisdom. I mean, the woman can pull off drama, comedy, period pieces, cameos, accents, and even singing for Chrissake!
My personal fave of all her fabulash films is Postcards From The Edge because it has it all and a bag of showstopping numbers too.
And yours? Pick any film you want–just don’t give me Heartburn.
