MOVIE REVIEW

With news that Streep will be working alongside Emily Blunt and Hamilton’s Lin Manuel-Miranda, the new film sounds like it could be shaping up to become practically perfect after all.

Meryl will be playing the role of Topsy Tartlet, a maid featured in P.L. Traver’s Mary Poppins Comes Back.
