I love that less-heralded Meryl Streep films like Falling in Love, She-Devil and Defending Your Life have been shown considerable appreciation lately. De Niro and Streep are such a breeze together. Their chemistry is chef’s kiss.
This film is magic. I saw a screener of Petite Maman a few months ago and found it so captivating that I promised myself I’d see it on the big screen upon its stateside release. Promise kept. Heart full. Vive la France.
