Remember this movie? It's probably been months since I've mentioned it, but that's because there's been nothing to mention! Today I discovered that IMDb lists the film as scheduled for a debut at the Cannes Film Festival on May 22nd. It's also evidently being shown in Telluride and Toronto before a limited release in the U.S. on October 3rd. With The Giver in August, The Homesman in October and Into the Woods in December, it's going to be Meryl smorgasbord in the second half of '14. Bring it on!
In other news, did anyone else see or read Meryl's tribute to Emma Thompson at the National Board of Review Awards from Tuesday night? The comments about Emma are all very nice, but the meat of the introduction included calling Walt Disney an anti-Semitic misogynist. I wonder how that would've come out in Meryl's performance had she ended up doing Saving Mr. Banks? Loves it.
