WRITE YOUR WRONGS.
Famous author Alice Hughes (Meryl Streep) is heading to Britain to receive an award; she’s traveling on the Queen Mary 2 and has brought friends (Candice Bergen, Dianne Wiest) and her nephew (Lucas Hedges). A movie partly improvised and shot on that actual ocean liner, using its natural lights; not all of Steven Soderbergh’s films are hits, but one has to admire his lust for experimenting. The story, depicting a friendship that is far from what it used to be, and a writer’s swan song, meanders along on the ship as we’re also treated to the nephew’s attempts to woo a reluctant literary agent. Appealing enough, with a great cast.
