Like another reviewer, I could ONLY make it through 45 min. of this dreadful movie; and, I nodded off for about 15 of those 45. I came to at about the 40 min. mark, just before an operatic singing scene, and I cringed and wondered "Oh my God, what am I watching?". I decided I better pause and read the reviews, and I'm glad I did, or I might have pushed on just to see if it got better (I highly recommend that you read the one star reviews, they're much more accurate than the five star ones). I've never been much of a Streep fan because I just don't see what all of her adoration is due to, there are much better actors in Hollyweird than her (Hillary Swank, Tom Harding, Keanue Reeves, Samual Jackson, Kevin Spacey, Morgan Freeman, Tom Hanks, Laura Dern, Brad Pitt, Edward Norton, Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, etc.); but, I do have several Hugh Grant movies in my personal collection. I bet this role was not a stretch for Meryl Streep because she, too, is an awful singer (remember "Mama Mia"), and, she is also surrounded by people who suck up to her. The life-lessons that were confirmed to me, during the 30 min. I was conscious, were: that many people suck up to the wealthy just because they are; that, sadly, many people create a fantasy world for themselves just to avoid reality, which their "loved ones" will help facilitate; and, that it's just as easy, maybe easier, for a whole group of people to lie, rather than just a single person, because they feel it is for a good reason. Instead of watching a sad boring movie about a woman who lived a fantasy life and those who helped in feeding that fantasy, I suggest that you go and enjoy your own life and not waste your precious moments on this dreadful, uninteresting, story.
