Chronology: 2005

In a rather quiet year – compared to the continuing exposure since the early 2000s – and in hindsight on what’s to come – Meryl Streep co-starred opposite Uma Thurman in the romantic comedy “Prime”, which drew favorable reviews but tanked at the box office. She reunited with writer Charlie Kaufman who, together with Joel and Ethan Coen, had been working on a live reading of two original sound plays, “Sawbones” and “Hope Leaves the Theater”. “Theater of the New Ear”, the summary title for both plays, starred Steve Buscemi, Hope Davis, Peter Dinklage, John Goodman, Marcia Gay Harden, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Brooke Smith, and was performed at the St. Ann’s Warehouse, a one-night-only at London’s Royal Festival Hall and at UCLA Live. In late 2005, Meryl Streep started filming for a new film that would change the trajectory of her career, once again.
