While many of Meryl Streep’s more recent films have seen her in supporting roles, she still knocks out the occasional starring turn. And while the Academy is prone to shower accolades on any Streep performance, I find she’s at her best when given meatier lead roles. It looks like she gets one in the upcoming film “Let Them All Talk”, a Steven Soderbergh dramedy streaming soon exclusively on HBO MAX.
The film sees Streep playing an author who reunites with old friends played by Candice Bergen and Dianne Wiest. The “Gang of Three” as they were once known come together with all of the surface niceties but soon old wounds start to fester. The film also stars the wonderful Gemma Chan and Lucas Hedges.
“Let Them All Talk” premieres December 10th on HBO MAX. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
