IMPLAUSIBLE LOVE STORY , RUINED BY STREEP'S ACTING BEING OVERBEARING .
on 29 January 2017
This could have been the classic that most reviewers refer too . However , Streep is so overacted , trying to win every scene . Quite frankly , she
is miscast and vastly over-rated . Her fake Italian accent is deplorable . Someone like Sally Field , would have complimented mr eastwood's tour
de force , far better . In the early indoor scene , where the two siblings analyse their Mothers sanity , the scene is ruined , by the upper half of the
window curtains , clearly defining two stage hands , moving about . This should have been so good , but the casting of Streep , guts it like a herring . The so typical grubbing for the spoils at the reading of the will , is very well done , which elevates it from one star . For those who may think this reviewer is either young , or has a short attention span , I am currently 63 and was married for a decade . The portrayal of the everso put upon housewife , becoming her true , hidden , emotional siren , is palpably ridiculous .
