MERYL STREEP: Anatomy of an Actor

MERYL STREEP: Anatomy of an Actor

Regular price £29.95

The ‘Anatomy of an Actor’ series takes ten roles by a single actor, each studied in a dedicated chapter, and identifies the key elements that made the performances exceptional – carefully examining the actor’s craft for both a professional audience and movie fans alike.

This new title explores the career of Meryl Streep (b.1949). One of the most talented actresses of her generation, Streep provides a high benchmark by which others are measured.

In films as diverse as The Deer Hunter (1978), Kramer vs. Kramer (1979), Mamma Mia (2008) and her Oscar-winning turn as Margaret Thatcher in The Iron Lady (2010), Streep has never failed to astound audiences with her ability to fully inhabit her characters.

An accessible text combines both a narrative and analytical dimension and is illustrated by 300 film stills, set photographs and film sequences.
