  1. Do you know anything else about this part? Sounds like she might not have a big role in this movie since she isn’t Mary Bee or any of the insane women.

    Anna – Yes, it’s not a big role unfortunately. People who have read the book say she’ll be there for 1 or 2 scenes only.

  2. How very disappointing. Thanks for the information and update. I was really looking forward to this movie and not now since Streep isn’t really in it. Disappointed Tommy Lee Jones would do this and not give her a big role.

    Anna – I don’t want to make assumptions yet since I highly doubt Tommy Lee to leave Meryl with such a small role, you know.. Also her daughter Grace’s starring too so maybe they’ll have a scene together. And there’s always the fact that they have maybe changed the script so who knows..
