That Old Bible, Meryl Street


"The filmmakers mounted Streep on platform heels, stretched her out, and put her together with the compact Stanley Tucci (as Child’s loving husband, Paul). Like a tall ship in full sail, Streep leans, tilts, and billows. Odd explosions of air—whoops, exclamations—come hurtling through the passageways. She runs out of breath, and then settles, mysteriously, like an old Bible that italicizes ordinary words, on a single syllable." -- David Denby -- and Julie & Julia review : The New Yorker

Fine, but she's still not off the hook for Mama Mia.

She did good. Go see the movie. They both did good.
