Leadership, transformation, and a truly "rare interview"
The family was discussing our movie roster wish-list for the holidays and the choices seem awesome, especially compared to last year's minimal line-up, so we are guessing we'll be theatre-hopping over the next couple of weeks. On our list are Hugo, Sherlock Holmes,
Tintin, and Mission Impossible - hope we can fit them all in. (Plus, an adult flick - what is The Artist rated, and am I the only person who hasn't read The Lady with the Dragon Tattoo?)
One must-go film will be Iron Lady, with Meryl Streep as former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Streep is by far my favorite actress and I'm always amazed how she transforms herself - whether it be a Holocaust survivor, Julia Child, or Alec Baldwin's ex-wife. Plus anyone who can pull off Mama Mia the way she did deserves a special round of applause, along with her Oscars.
If you missed last night's 60 Minutes on CBS, check out Streep in this fabulous interview by Morley Safer. We also included a fun second video which was not featured on the show, Meryl's Men: How She Feels about her Co-Stars like Dustin, Jack, Kevin and Alec.
Enjoy the show.
