Months of Meryl: THE RIVER WILD

"Great post and comments. Yes, Streep had to navigate the rough waters of being in her 40's! I do think she smashed through the glass ceiling for women since she persevered and then became an even bigger star in her 50's." - Sister Rona

"One of my favourite movies from my teen years - I'm shocked at how long ago this was released. It was Meryl that sold this movie for me and is the reason I saw it. At the time, and I still feel this way, she is the reason to watch and believe this film." -Filmboymichael

Beauty Break: The Time 100

Chris here to start your weekend with some star gazing. Time Magazine's annual list of the 100 most influential people is here! While there's the usual assortment of world leaders, innovators, and executives (not to mentions some unsavories), it's the magic makers of the entertainment sort that catch our hearts here at The Film Experience. That ebullient Viola Davis cover to your left is nothing if not a factory for happiness.

The assembled talent and wavemakers run the gamut from Ava DuVernay to Sarah Paulson to Riz Ahmed to Constance Wu, the kind of future Hollywood we actually want to see. But the real fun of the lineup is the profiles written by other famous types about the honorees - Naomi Campbell paying tribute to RuPaul? Your icon wishes! Take a look at the photo set and tell us your favorites in the comments!

"Barry Jenkins. You worked the influencer challenge, but on the main stage your Moonlight shined bright. Riz Ahmed. Your neon runway made us go Rogue. Condragulations, you are both the winner of this week's challenge."

Get Constance Wu and Sarah Paulson a buddy comedy, stat!

La La Land outtakes or just the afterglow of the film's magic?

Finally Queen Viola graced cover of Time.
And where is Damien Chezelle, Mahersala Ali, Isabelle Huppert ? Esp Huppert deserved to be listed for her body of work alone
Honestly what is criteria to be listed on Time 100 because some choices are questionable

I expected next year feature Nicole Kidman, Jessica Lange, Colin Farrel, Beyonce (again), Julianne Moore

My fav has gotta be Sarah Paulson. Specifically, Cate writing about working with Sarah Paulson on Carol. Bless.

Yes, of course to VIOLA and EMMA. But I think my vote would go to Constance Wu and Riz Ahmed.

Riz Ahmed is outstanding and he's been Oscar-worthy at least twice... not only "Nightcrawler", but also the MUST SEE comedy masterpiece called "Four Lions".
