MERYL UPS ANTE FOR SEA­SON TWO

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Front Page -

HOW do you take a show that stars five of the big­gest fe­male ac­tors on the planet, a kick-ass script and a creative team of TV ge­nius and make it bet­ter? One word: Meryl. Like Cher and Madonna, Streep is one of those rare birds who can ditch the sur­name and know her mono-moniker is enough to guarantee this sea­son will be world class. Oh and it is, with the Os­car-win­ning legend bring­ing an­other layer of mys­tery and in­trigue to this thriller which will again have you trans­fixed. Meryl is Mary Louise Wright, the death was the accident his wife and her four friends have told po­lice. She plays the dot­ing grand­mother, but don’t be fooled: there is menace in her moves to im­plant her­self in Mon­terey; close to her twin grand­sons and closer still to watch the women she thinks have some­thing to hide when it comes to her son’s shock death. Her clashes with Made­line (Reese Wither­spoon) in par­tic­u­lar are wickedly fun to watch. Co-stars Laura Dern, Zoe Kravitz and this week’s covergirl Shai­lene Wood­ley.
