In “Ironweed” Meryl plays Helen Archer, a former singer turned homeless drunk. In exchange for access to a flophouse for shelter, she puts out for another homeless guy. Meryl’s character is also the longtime companion of Jack Nicholson’s character. Who is also a drunk. There is no doubt Helen would also turn tricks off-screen to support her drinking habit. Helen does turn tricks TWICE in exchange for shelter during the film. It is not a movie you want to watch when depressed. Nonetheless, Streep would not only get another Oscar nomination but add this film to her gallery of stunning performances.
