Fill The Void
Rama Burshtein's acclaimed Israeli family drama, set within an Orthodox Jewish community
Comedy-drama about the relationship between a mother and daughter, both of whom are actresses whose careers have been affected by addictions. Based on Carrie Fisher's semi-autobiographical novel
Mike Nichols (The Graduate, Silkwood) directs this adaptation of Carrie Fisher's semi-autobiographical novel; the result is a constant delight.
Streep proves her knack for comedy as Suzanne Yale, an actress whose career has been blighted by drug addiction. After a spell in rehab she is sent to live with her mother Doris Mann (MacLaine), once a star, now a seasoned alcoholic, and their relationship comes under scrutiny.
Most of the film is taken up with the two women attempting to sort out their differences, but Quaid also shows up in a nicely funny turn as Suzanne's persistent, cheating boyfriend.
Very enjoyable indeed.
