Better late than never, added pictures of Meryl attending the The Public Theater & Labyrinth Theater Company’s “Othello” Opening Night on September 20. 

The video archive has been modified for the new layout and has been made more functionable and easier on the eye. Also, two new clips from the 1990s have been added with many thanks to Bruno for finding them and letting me add them to the archives. First, a report from the British film programme “The Big Picture” on “She-Devil”. Then, a French report on Meryl leaving her handprints at the Mann’s Chinese Theatre in 1994.

The complete schedule for the International Rome Film Festival has been announced, and they will not only award Meryl with the Golden Marc’aurelio Acting Award, as previously reported, they will be also showing a retrospective of her past and present work, including “Plent”, “Out of Africa”, “A Cry in the Dark”, “Adaptation”, among others, and “Julie & Julia” as the festival’s closing film. Additionally, the documentary “I Knew It Was You: Remembering John Cazale” will be shown. A list of all screening dates can be found after the cut with many thanks to Illara for the heads-up!

Welcome to the latest version of Simply Streep! I wasn’t all too content with the previous layout in celebration of the site’s 10th anniversary and Meryl’s 60th birthday, so I worked behind the scenes to give the site a new – still classic, yet better look! I hope you all like it! The Biography section is back (with many thanks to Pam for her help!) and there’s an open-call at the Fan Art section to contribute your creations for its coming opening. The Image Library and Video Archive will be converted to the new layout in the coming days as well. Feel free to comment on the new look and enjoy your stay!
