An international trailer for “The Homesman” has been released today and we get to see a glimpse (it’s really not much more) of Meryl as Altha Carter. The french subtitles might hint a premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, although no official announcements have been made yet. For some strange reasons, IMDb lists a theatrical release for France for May 21, which would be odd - considering that the US release is stated for October 2014. Let’s see if this gets confirmed. Adapted by Jones himself from Glendon Swarthout‘s novel, the story follows him as a down-and-out man who gets recruited to take three women on an odyssey from Nebraska to Iowa. Alongside Tommy Lee Jones, “The Homesman” features a top-notch cast in Hilary Swank, Hailee Steinfeld, Meryl Streep, Tim Blake Nelson, James Spader, William Fichtner, Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto and Jesse Plemons, among others.
I did not find her easy to work with, but then it’s not her job to make it easy for me. On days that our characters got on, so did we. The days they didn’t, we didn’t either. There were times, I would think, ‘Christ, is it me? Do I have bad breath today? Or am I turning in an appalling performance?’ (Charles Dance, People Magazine, 1985)
The movie stills have been reorganized in the image library (many have been replaced with better quality pictures) and some nice additions have been made as well. Updates range from films between “Julia” to “Falling in Love”. Since almost everything has been updated, simply browse the albums for everything new.
The magazines archive has been re-organized these past days to make it easier to access and browse. Over the years, hundreds of magazines have been obtained - some have been transcripted, other can be found in the image library. Now, both collections have been merged to give a comprehensive list of articles. Also, since many visitors come from around the world and many articles have been posted in foreign languages, there’s a new compilation of international magazines. Simply click the country of your destiny to find all articles available in your language. You will be surprised how much has been collected. My most sincere thanks to all the visitors who have contributed their collections and rare finds, most especially Alvaro, who has sent in most of the scans you’re able to read on Simply Streep. If you have collected articles that are not featured yet, why not drop me a line and help make this list even more comprehensible. Additionally to the new magazines archive, some 100 new scans have been added to the image library. Some are re-added, because I’m sure they had been posted on here before. Simply browse the last updated albums for a complete list. Enjoy reading.
