An average movie

Since Meryl Streep is my favorite actress, I definitely had to watch this flick at some point. Even though it is definitely not one of her best movies, I thought it was a decent satire. I mean, she was really great, as usual, completely disappearing behind her character but I thought that, even though the material was pretty dark and really interesting, the tone was just too light for my taste.
