As the Cannes Film Festival is underway, a new clip of The Homesman has been released, this time including our girl.
This may actually be the bulk of her scene, as in the book it wasn't much more than this. I have a feeling however that they may have expanded it just a bit to possibly include a more extended dialogue between Streep and Jones's characters. I think Meryl is doing some kind of accent here as well, but I don't really know how people sounded in southern Iowa in the 19th century. I believe the majority of that area was settled by people from Pennsylvania, so I'm not really sure what to call it, but some may say it's a "Central Plains Midwestern Accent" today. Regardless, she does a great job overall in this scene.
Looking forward to getting a few reviews for this film.
