Meryl Streep and Cara Delevingne are storytellers by COVID-19


The last image that we have of Meryl Streep it is one in which interprets Ladies who lunch the american composer Stephen Sondheim via Zoom, with their colleagues, filmmakers Audra McDonald and Christine Baranski, while baby-to-peak of the bottle for a little bit of Martini. Yes, what a way to start a Monday more quarantine! Now, on another Monday, not any a new image of Meryl Streep pokes, although this time a bit more sophisticated. The actress with the highest number of nominations for an Oscar award becomes our storytelling favorite.

Yes!, along with other Hollywood celebrities such as Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate BlanchettChris and Liam Hemsworth, Ryan Reynolds, Sarah Paulson and Cara Delevingne, Meryl Streep binds to the initiative the director for the new zealand Taika Waititi (Jojo Rabbit / Thor: Ragnarok), responsible for initiating reading rooms from the homes of these artists in benefit of the NGO, medical, Partners in Health, to raise funds and support to the most vulnerable communities that have been affected around the world by the pandemic COVID-19. The book to read could not be another more than the classic british writer Roald Dahl: ‘James and the Giant Peach’ (in Spanish, ‘James and the peach giant’). The first delivery is already on YouTube!

In this way, the series ‘James and the giant peach with Taika & friends’ will have 10 episodes that will be posted each Monday (like today), Wednesday and Friday, with figures that stand out in Hollywood as the american model Cara Delevigne or Meryl Streep. The daughter of Roald Dahl, Ophelia, is one of the founders of the NGO medical Partners in Health and Taika Waititi to be a great follower.

‘As a child-adult that I am, and having read ‘James and the peach giant’ my daughters, on multiple occasions, I am delighted to associate myself with my friends, the team of the Roald Dahl’s Story, Company and Partners in Health and retelling this story to help those most in need’, has said the director’s Oscar-winning, Taika Waititi in a press release. ‘This crazy and wonderful story is about resilience in children, the triumph in the face of adversity and dealing with a sense of isolation that could not be more relevant today’, he emphasizes.

Meryl Streep is our storyteller favorite of this quarantine.
