Never been the biggest fan of Roberts, but I agree that she is excellent here.
I thought Chris Cooper was the best thing about the movie.
I rate Streep's chances of winning the Oscar for this as around 1%, not because it's a bad performance, but rather, because her character is just so damn odious.

After an incredibly tedious first hour with dull dialogue and Meryl Streep chain smoking, it finally picks up once the focus is on other characters. Apart from a few great scenes, I'd happily have left the cinema to watch something else. It's as exciting as the title suggests.

A great cast in that it was full of 'actors', even the smaller parts, I found Benedict Cumberbatch's performance pretty much heartbreaking! So what if it felt like a filmed play, loads of the audience wouldn't have had chance to see the it on stage, I'd never even heard of the play. It was Meryl Streep doing what she does best, surrounded by a load of other great actors/actresses. It makes a change from all the Superhero/Sci-fi films, which I love!
