Let Them All Talk

Meryl Streep reunites with director Steven Soderbergh (The Laundromat), playing a seasoned author in writing limbo. Fellow Oscar veterans Dianne Wiest and Candice Bergen play her longtime friends, one of whom has been scorned by her previous work. Shot during an actual week-long cruise with paying customers aboard, the film co-stars Lucas Hedges (Lady Bird) as the author's nephew and Gemma Chan (Humans) as a young literary agent.

The title is appropriate: it’s garrulous, elegant, bristling with classy performances from an A-list cast, and Deborah Eisenberg’s screenplay has a theatrical intimacy.

The run-and-gun approach that makes this movie possible is also what ends up shooting it in the foot, as the clock is always ticking and Soderbergh never has time to get out of the shallows.

There’s a gentle, lived-in quality to the material that’s a departure for Soderbergh, whose films would rarely be called heartfelt.

Steven Soderbergh’s signature formal gamesmanship enlivens what could have been a stodgy scenario.

It's full of wry observations about the confusion of relationships — female friendships in particular — along with droll insights about a writer's inspiration and whether drawing from real life constitutes a license or a betrayal.

There’s a loose, jazzy verve to the production, a sort of sonic and visual razzmatazz that gives the film a fanciful Oceans 11-style gloss.
