Sorry, had to step out for a bit....
You are mistaken to think that i thought you wanted an argument.
I have to say though, that i truly value accurate perception of things.
I am very aware of the Awards program at which Meryl Streep gave a standing ovation in response to an award for best director {in addition to several other awards {Acadamy Awards} that night} for the motion picture 'The Pianist'...
The entire assembled audience also applauded the choice too...
I wouldn't dare to speak for other people's motivations, but i believe it's safe to say that it was for that particular film that the enthusiastic response was for, and not it's director's foibles.
And besides...films of that caliber are not made by 1 person.
'The Pianist' is an incredibly moving film.{and one who's story needed telling}
If there exists any record of Meryl Streep condoning Roman Polanski's personal behaviors...that's another thing entirely.
Also Sanshee...it's not Hollywood that is leading the protest movement against President Trump...it's a totally grass-roots American/Global upheaval{outrage?} movement.
I myself do not hold or reference 'Hollywood' as my personal choice of guiding light in matters of affairs either 'righteous' or global outlook..
They produce films as a commodity foremost and as entertainment secondary.
Seriously, i don't hold Hollywood as a font of social conscientiousness....not at all.
This whole Polanski thing...let France have 'em.
