New pic from the set of "The Papers"

A new pic has surfaced of Meryl in costume as Kay Graham in Steven Spielberg's The Papers:


I think the glasses might be Meryl's, but obviously the rest is pure character.  

There's certainly been a lot of chatter on awards blogs about not only Meryl's role but the entire pedigree of this film.  Speculation is that this will contend for Best Picture, Director, Screenplay, Actor and Actress.   I want more than anything for this movie to be big deal and of course bring Meryl a lot of acclaim, but the pessimist in me is cautious.  We've been in the position before where expectations were super high for a film (see A:OC) and it not delivering in all departments.  Here's hoping The Papers is the real thing.

  1. I'm fascinated to see how this one turns out. When you have one of the greatest directors, actors and actresses as well as a recently acclaimed screenwriter all coming together it should in theory be foolproof.
    The only thing that might let it down is the comparatively short post-production time.

    I'm almost entirely sure this film will be solid even if it doesn't get the acclaim and attention it so clearly wants.
    Let's just marvel that the best in the business are all coming together. Hanks and Streep will be electric together.

  2. I'm really looking forward to this movie but I can imagine the pressure on Meryl. It's a Spielberg movie plus it's going to be released for Oscar consideration. It's hard being her with all those expectations...I don't think there's any actress out there who's saddled with all these Oscar talk as much as she for EVERY movie she does. It's unfair to her.
