In the movie Grand Canyon, one character utters the memorable line, “That’s part of your problem: you haven’t seen enough movies. All of life’s riddles are answered in the movies!” Though not every movie may have answers for us, according to Lolly, the owner of a Maine bed-and-breakfast, Meryl Streep’s films are as “good as chicken soup, a best friend, a therapist, and a stiff drink.” She’s very grateful for the comfort these movies provide, especially while navigating more than her share of hardships. In Mia March’s heart-tugging novel, Lolly tries to reunite family by forming The Meryl Streep Movie Club, a weekly opportunity to celebrate cinema as counselor, bond-builder, and universal truth. Curl up with a bowl of popcorn and decide which Streep-inspired storyline speaks most to you.
