Meryl Streep Movie List

More and more I fall in love with Meryl Streeps work. Lately, I am watching lots of movie of her. If you dont know already, IMDB.com (Internet Movie Database) is a great source for you to search about actors, movies and put together a great Movie List for the weekend. I am having trouble sleeping lately, so I take my laptop to bed with me and watch a movie every other day.


I´ve done a Meryl Streep List and I have watched so far: 
1. The Devil wears Prada
2. Lions for Lambs
3. Mamma Mia!
4. Kramer vs Kramer
5. The Bridge of Madison County (I am still crying over this one!)
6. The hour
7. Its complicated!
8. Doubt
9. Prime




I have just finished watching The Bridge of Madison County and I am still crying over it. It was so simply, deep, thoughtful and delightful. This is one kind of movie you always want to watch but I end up not having the chance to. I have always had it in my To-Watch list and finally I did it. Meryl Streep plays an Italian woman called Francesca and Clint Eastwood plays Robert Kinkaid, a National Geographic´s landscape photographer. Meryl Streep is a house wife mother of two and Clint ends up knocking on her door asking for directions. They have a four day affair and iniciate a lifetime platonic romance. It is so dense and beautiful.


At the end, Robert sends her a book with a Lord Byron poem:
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne'er express, yet cannot all conceal.
- Lord Byron


Movie quotes:


Francesca: And in that moment, everything I knew to be true about myself up until then was gone. I was acting like another woman, yet I was more myself than ever before. 


Robert Kincaid: This kind of certainty comes but once in a lifetime. 


Robert Kincaid: I don't want to need you, 'cause I can't have you. 


Francesca: Robert, please. You don't understand, no-one does. When a woman makes the choice to marry, to have children; in one way her life begins but in another way it stops. You build a life of details. You become a mother, a wife and you stop and stay steady so that your children can move. And when they leave they take your life of details with them. And then you're expected move again only you don't remember what moves you because no-one has asked in so long. Not even yourself. You never in your life think that love like this can happen to you. 
Robert Kincaid: But now that you have it... 
Francesca: I want to keep it forever. I want to love you the way I do now the rest of my life. Don't you understand... we'll lose it if we leave. I can't make an entire life disappear to start a new one. All I can do is try to hold onto to both. Help me. Help me not lose loving you. 


Robert: When I think of why I make pictures, the reason that I can come up with just seems that I've been making my way here. It seems right now that all I've ever done in my life is making my way here to you. 
Francesca: So, do you want more eggs or should we just fuck on the linoleum one last time? 


Francesca: I realized love won't obey our expectations, it's mystery is pure and absolute. What Robert and I had, could not continue if we were together. What Richard and I shared would vanish if we were apart. But how I wanted to share this. How would our lives have changed if I had? Could anyone else have seen the beauty of it?

Robert Kincaid: Things change. They always do, it's one of the things of nature. Most people are afraid of change, but if you look at it as something you can always count on, then it can be a comfort.

The next Meryl STreep movie I want to watch is Sophie´s Choice, but I am kind of reluctant on this one. It seems really sad. I would need to be in the mood for it...I just dont know if I need to be in a bad-down mood and watch it to cry it all or to be in a good mood to look at it with other eyes....I never know the best mood to watch certain kind of movie......If it is a good mood for a down movie, a down mood for a down movie, a good mood for a fun and light movie or a down mood for a funny movie...There are lot of choices before watching a movie...aff !

lets see which day!!!
