As previously mentioned, “The Homesman” has been released on DVD and Blu-Ray in France, yesterday. The Western drama, directed by Tommy Lee Jones and starring Jones, Hilary Swank, James Spader, John Lithgow and Meryl Streep in a cameo performance, had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival this Spring and released French theaters shortly after – hence the early home media release. You can order both the DVD and Blu-Ray at Amazon in France (if you’re living outside of Europe, please inform yourself about region codes). The Blu-Ray includes a lengthy featurette, but sadly no footage with Meryl. Screencaptures from the film have been added to the image library.


Meryl Streep, the Takacs Quartet, and Philip Roth aren’t names likely to be seen together, much less people found in the same concert hall. Yet Princeton University Concerts presented all three in Richardson Auditorium on Friday evening, with the quartet playing Arvo Pärt and Franz Schubert, Streep reading extensively from the 2006 novel Everyman, and its author, Roth, listening in the audience – in a one-time-only event that guaranteed a packed house. An in-depth article can be read here, two pictures have been added to the image library. Thanks to everybody for the heads-up.

Here comes the third and final update of 1990s pictures. All images are from events that took place in 1999 and include Meryl’ extensive promotion for “Music of the Heart”, Academy Awards, Golden Globes and Venice Film Festival. Once again, the complete list of updated albums can be found below the previews. Enjoy the new additions.

The US theatrical trailer for “The Homesman” has been released, showing lots of new footage, especially on Tommy Lee Jones and Hilary Swank, whose performance received quite some positive buzz after the film’s festival premieres. The rest, however, remains mysterious to me. While “The Homesman” has already received a theatrical release in some European countries back in May, this trailer states the US release as “Coming Soon”, while the IMDb lists a limited theatrical release for November 14, 2014. We’ll see how this one continues.

Meryl has attended the New York premiere for “My Old Lady”, starring friend and colleague Kevin Kline, and co-starring Maggie Smith and Kristin Scott Thomas. Streep and Kline were joined on the red carpet by another friend, Glenn Close. In the film, directed by Israel Horovitz, Kline plays an American who inherits an apartment in Paris that comes with an unexpected resident. Pictures from the premiere have been added to the image library.
