The Beauty of Retrospect, September Actress Edition: Meryl Streep

So what has Meryl Streep been doing since I originally featured her in July 2012?

Plenty, actually, though it would be foolish of me to go into detail about everything she's done in the three years or so between my earlier post and this one.

She played Violet Weston, a feisty Oklahoma matriarch dying of cancer, in the family drama August: Osage County, and in August 2015, she caught people's attention in Ricki and the Flash, a Jonathan Demme film in which Ricki, her character, revisits her family after having abandoned them to pursue her dream of becoming a famous rock singer. At the urging of her former husband, Pete (played by Kevin Kline), she returns home to help their daughter through a bad time, and she tries to reconnect with her two sons as well as her daughter.

Meryl Streep shows no signs of slowing down. :-)
