Tuesday at the Movies

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic This summer, we continue our love affair with the movies, focusing on four performances by Meryl Streep. Streep holds the record for the most Academy Award nominations of any actor, having been nominated 21 times—17 for Best Actress, and 4 for Best Supporting Actress. She has won three times for her work in Kramer vs. Kramer (1979, Robert Benton), Sophie's Choice (1982, Alan Pakula), and The Iron Lady (2011, Phyllida Lloyd)—all of which will be reviewed and discussed in our study group—making her the fifth actor to win three competitive acting Academy Awards. In addition, we will view and discuss the film The French Lieutenant's Woman (1981, Karel Reisz) for which she received a nomination for Best Actress. In 2012, Streep became the most nominated performer in Golden Globe Awards history with 23 nominations. We will watch each week's movie in advance of the study group; participants must obtain the movies on their own, which can usually be found through a streaming service, and range in rental cost from $0–$3.99. Each movie will be presented by a study group member who will volunteer to lead the discussion.
