Filmmaker John Walter artfully captures Meryl Streep groping for - and then seizing - the character in her unforgettable portrayal of Mother Courage in Tony Kushner’s adaptation of the Bertold Brecht masterpiece Mother Courage and Her Children, which was presented by The Public Theater/NY Shakespeare Festival in Central Park in the summer of 2006. As Manohla Dargis in the Times observed, "Walter jumps from art to history and politics and back again, from the theater of the streets to the theater of the stage, without pause."
