After 20 Years, Robert De Niro, Meryl Streep Reunite For 'The Good House'


Robert De Niro Meryl Streep Michael Cunningham

Twenty years since their last movie role together, Robert De Niro and Meryl Streep - two giants of Hollywood - are to reunite for an adaptation of Ann Leary's novel The Good House.

The darkly comic tale is told through the eyes of Hildy Good (Streep), a New York realtor and recovering alcoholic whose life begins to fall apart when she forms a new friendship with Rebecca McCallister. 

As Rebecca becomes the subject of town gossip, Hildy rekindles her friendship with old flame Frank Getchell (De Niro) a straight talking Yankee who tries to uncomplicated her life.

Evening Review


Good
Evening enjoys prestigious name recognition. It is based on a novel by Susan Minot, and adapted by Michael Cunningham, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours.

A Home At The End Of The World Review


Weak
An initially touching story that wilts under its own insignificance, A Home at the End of the World is the second film to be adapted from a Michael Cunningham novel, following the footsteps of The Hours, a work that, for all its flaws, A Home can't even come close to. In an opening that veers wildly, and not unpleasantly, between adolescent melodrama and wildly unintended farce, we are given the suburban Cleveland childhood of two buddies, Bobby Morrow and Jonathan Glover. Bobby's eyes were opened to the world at age nine in the late 1960s, when his older brother Carlton introduced him to the joys of acid and hanging out in graveyards.

A few years later, after the deaths of both Carlton and his mother, Bobby is a puppy-eyed teenager who inherited Carlton's magnetic personality and utter lack of guile, which is what attracts another teen, the gawkier Jonathan, to him. After his dad dies, Bobby moves permanently into the Glover household as a sort of unofficial adopted brother to Jonathan - except that they're brothers who occasionally make out and smoke joints with Mrs. Glover (Sissy Spacek). The rather uptight Jonathan (he wears glasses and has braces, you see) can't handle Bobby's openness and is more than a little jealous of how eagerly her mother has embraced him into their family, and their romantic relationship stalls.
