'Let Them All Talk' takes a breezy boat trip with Meryl Streep and company

“모두 이야기하자” 바다 크루즈만큼 미풍 (Pre-Covid), 그리고 3 개의 7 월지도를 즐길 수있는 반가운 변명입니다. — 메릴 스트립, Candice Bergen과 Dianne Wiest — as they banter their way across the Atlantic. Yet director Steven Soderbergh also offers some surprises, steering this polished little film in unexpected directions.

At its heart the moviewritten by novelist Deborah Eisenbergis a sort-of mystery: Streep’s Alice, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist, is scheduled to receive a prestigious award in the UK. Because she can’t fly for health reasons, the publisher opts to book her on an ocean liner to get there, and grudgingly allows her to bring three companions.
She invites two old friends, Barbara and Susan (played by Bergen and Wiest), with whom she hasn’t communicated for decades, creating a puzzle about why she offered, and why they (especially Barbara) 수락 됨.
Here’s to picking up the conversation where we left off,” Alice says as the journey begins, which only raises more questions.
    Rounding out the group is her nephew, 타일러 (Lucas Hedges), and surreptitiously, a representative for the publisher (“Crazy Rich Asians'Gemma Chan), who basically uses him to try wring out a sequel to Alice’s greatest work, while the smitten kid is falling for her in the process.
    The idea of female friendshipsand what can torpedo themis hardly a new one. 과연, Bergen starred in a 1981 영화, “Rich and Famous,” which cast her opposite Jacqueline Bisset in a somewhat similar scenario.
    아직도, 같이 “모두 이야기하자” (a bland title) chugs along, it becomes increasingly involving, and then doesn’t really deliver a particularly Hollywood-style ending. Soderbergh also elicits wonderfully natural performances from his leadsconstructed with extensive improvisationstarting with Barbara’s resistance to grabbing tea or coffee with Alice, fueling speculation about the lingering grudge that drove them apart.
    In interviews, the principals have noted that the movie was shot on a relative shoestring, over a few weeks as the ship made its passage. The fact that most reasonable people would rather watch a cruise right now than actually risk booking one is either something of an added bonus or a distraction, take your pick.
    For Streepwho also teamed with Soderbergh on last year’s The Laundromatthe juxtaposition of this streaming movie and another a day part, 넷플릭스 “무도회,” offers a reminder of both her range, and why she remains in such high demand. 여기, she’s restrained to the point of clenched; 거기, she’s a loud, narcissistic actor in the latter, belting out show tunes.
      Aided by a jaunty Thomas Newman score, “모두 이야기하자” manages to be both fairly disposable and thoroughly entertaining. And it has likely found the right home on HBO Max, where a discerning audience can go with the flowor streamat their own leisurely pace.
      “모두 이야기하자” 12 월 초연. 11 on HBO Max, 어느, CNN처럼, is a unit of WarnerMedia.
