“Let Them All Talk” Has Actually Got Everyone Talking


It may not really be a brand-new story but the cast combination is rare, to put it mildly. Headlining this movie is none other than the Queen herself. Meryl Streep is playing Alice Hughes, a famous author who finds herself on a journey that changes something most writers of her caliber would never have thought possible, namely her perspective.


Along with Candice Bergen (“Boston Legal” | “Murphy Brown”) and Dianne Wiest (“Life In Pieces” | “The Birdcage”), we are getting a friendship trio that looks ready to knock our socks off when the movie premieres on HBO Max come 10th December 2020.


Alice as a character is complex, which compliments Meryl’s skills. Another character featured in this film is Alice’s nephew (played by Lucas Hedges of “Boy Erased” and “Manchester By The Sea” fame), who comes along for the trip but is soon distracted by a literary agent whom he starts to fancy.



The Plot


While everyone is enjoying their time on the cruise, the characters played by Meryl, Candice, and Dianne seem to be stuck in it. This is because of the way tensions unfold and secrets are brought to light.


By secrets, we do not mean anything sinister, just a human misunderstanding where Meryl’s character Alice once wronged her friends, and she now finds herself in the rare position of confronting her past and hopefully resolving any mistakes without losing the ones she loves.


The screenplay is going to be key in such a story, and for that, we have Deborah Eisenberg’s talents to look forward to her. The MacArthur Fellowship recipient is sure to have done justice to every character in this highly anticipated Steven Soderbergh film.



Brilliant Collaborations


The Streep-Soderbergh connection can be best appreciated in 2019’s “The Laundromat”, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival that year. The Panama Papers drama definitely raised eyebrows for both performance value and content veracity.


The movie debuted on Netflix, which brings us to another Meryl-starrer coming next month (on 11th December 2020) on that streaming platform. “The Prom” is set to take stage-musical remakes to a whole new level.


Netflix is not the only streamer with access to the Queen of Hollywood and character artiste extraordinaire. Apple TV+ has earned Meryl’s voice talents for their animated short film “Here We Are: Notes for Living on Planet Earth.”



Soderbergh Sorcery


The man’s a genius, to put it simply. An Oscar winner and passionate filmmaker, Steven Soderbergh has lent his brilliance to several interesting projects. In addition to reviving the long-awaited sequel “Bill and Ted Face the Music”, he recently executive-produced “Wireless” for Quibi.


HBO Max is not done with Soderbergh. Stars like Ray Liotta, Don Cheadle, David Harbour, Benicio del Toro, and Jon Hamm are going to give us all something to look forward to in “No Sudden Move”.


Save The Date


Gregory Jacobs is in the producer’s seat for “Let Them All Talk”, in association with Warner Max and Extension 765. Joseph Malloch is Ken Meyer are the executive producers.


HBO Max is going to be the proud streamer for “Let Them All Talk”, which premieres on 10th December 2020, a day before “The Prom” on Netflix. So here’s wishing you all a ‘Meryl’ Christmas.
