My Year with Meryl Streep: 52 Films in 52 Weeks
Who doesn’t love Meryl Streep?
The star of Kramer vs. Kramer, Sophie’s Choice, and The Devil Wears Prada has been entertaining audiences for nearly four decades. She’s been nominated for nineteen Academy Awards and counting. She’s starred in dramas, comedies, musicals. She’s even been an action star.
For all of 2014, author Brian Rowe watched one Meryl movie each week, in chronological order — everything from her 1977 debut drama, Julia, to her 2014 musical spectacular, Into the Woods. This book invites readers to spend a year with our greatest living actress, and marvel in the evolution of the wondrous Meryl Streep.
Who doesn’t love Sandra Bullock?
The star of Speed, A Time to Kill, The Proposal, and The Heat has been entertaining audiences for nearly thirty years. Four of her six most recent films have accumulated more than $1.5 billion dollars at the worldwide box office. She won an Academy Award for her performance in The Blind Side, and was nominated again for her work in Alfonso Cuaron’s remarkable Gravity.
She’s a true movie star, one who deserves a book about her varied and fascinating career.
