I loved it.
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

She made Florence Real, not a characature.
I thought it was well written, and drew me in, making me care about her.
Hugh Grant was good too.
And the guy from Big Bang Theory as her accompanist was terrific.
It was VERY funny!

Another Oscar for Streep or at least a nomination?

Saw it. Liked it. Not the type of film that will make big money but I found it very well done.

Meryl Streep has had a few great movies, such as The Devil Wears Prada and Julie and Julia. She did a really good job as Julia Child. I think she is one of the best actresses we have today.

...I have no inclination to do the second go around.

(Marguerite is the French film on the same subject).

I do not particularly enjoy watching disfigured people.
