Meryl Streep is starring as Katherine Graham in Steven Spielberg’s most recent film The Post (view the trailer at the end of the post). Being released on Christmas Day in select theaters, I continue to read complimentary review after complimentary review, and of course Oscar nominations can’t be far behind (it has already earned six Golden Globe nominations – awards will be handed out Sunday January 7th). And it is Streep’s role as Katherine Graham, the first female publisher of a major news publication, The Washington Post, that has critics tipping their hat as seen below in The Wall Street Journal’s article released a couple of days ago:
It’s a great story told well, for the most part, and exceptionally well through Meryl Streep’s Katharine Graham, the Post’s publisher, whose leadership in the face of danger to her company and to herself is a profile in hard-won courage. -“‘The Post’ Review: Vibrant, Vital and Essential“, WSJ
Currently, I have begun to read Katherine Graham’s Pulitzer Prize winning autobiography, and will eagerly wait until I am able to see the film.
As with the many roles in the film industry, which has spanned 42 years, Meryl Streep as well makes savvy decisions when it comes to real estate (along with her husband sculptor, Don Gummer) as evidenced by her recent purchase of this late 1950s home in Pasadena which hasn’t changed hands in nearly 50 years (until now).
Now the images you see here are the staged images for the real estate brochure, but I can only imagine the vast possibilities with the enormous amount of natural daylight available, hardwood floors and secluded location. I look forward to hopefully a big reveal in the months or years to come, but as she is quite private, which I wholehearted respect and appreciate, regarding her personal life, this may be as close as we get.
