To Win Without War - There is no humanity without the awareness of cruelty. As much as we want to believe in reason, in goodness, we have to remember otherwise and understand...

I want to know if Meryl Streep is an evil bitch that is dead set against anyone without 50 years experience in the church or if she is a martyr fighting against a man who is doing unquestionably bad things to children?
I love the part where Streep gives her vicious speech in the preview where she is almost screaming. I wouldn't be surprised if she was nominated for an Academy Award for a fifteenth time, blowing Katharine Hepburn and Bette Davis' records out of the water. Not that Streep is a better actress than Bette. Maybe she's just had better opportunities.
Also I want to know why they wear the little Amish costumes, but then a boy has an iPod in the movie? That almost takes me out of the stern coldness of the film, but at the same time it intrigues me. I hope to see it ASAP. If there isn't an advance screening, then I have opening weekend marked on my calendar!
In addition, I just found out about this juicy sounding French film today:
Le Code a changé
Great cast & director! Now if I can only figure out what it's about. Oh yes, great poster too.
