Meryl Streep: Movies, marriage, and turning sixty

She's one of the greatest stars of our time, and the most nominated actress in Oscar history. But Meryl Streep has never surrendered to the Hollywood system. As her 60th birthday approaches, she discusses her acclaimed new film – and how she manages to stay sane after 30 years at the top

It's Winter (12A)

If the title It's Winter ended in an exclamation mark, you'd be right to be wary. But this is one seasonal film you can see without fear of encountering tap-dancing penguins or Jude Law in a cosy sweater. Rafi Pitts's film is somewhat more austere - but don't let the A-word put you off, either. Please don't overlook It's Winter in the festive rush; in any season, this Iranian gem would stand out as a terrific discovery.

FILM / A Shadow of Doubt; Le Parfum d'Yvonne

Hollywood is a past master at conjuring fears into family entertainment. Child abuse; child rights? It will grasp those nettles, sure, but in the form of dopey comedies like North (about a boy who tries to divorce his parents), Getting Even With Dad and Baby's Day Out - all cunningly encoded versions of modern anxieties about kid power. When America takes the big issues seriously, they'll be ghettoised in TV movies-of-the-week.

Competition: Oleanna offer: two for the price of one

DAVID MAMET'S Oleanna caused more arguments at dinner parties than any West End play for years. Few couples broke up after an evening watching, say, Jeffrey Archer's Beyond Reasonable Doubt (unless one half wanted to know why the other had bought the tickets in the first place). But if the rumours are true, Mamet's slippery take on the sex war has single-handedly doubled the divorce rate. And even though it's been claimed that the men who shouted 'Kill the bitch' on the first night were plants, Oleanna clearly had a profound effect on its audience. This was at least partly due to the acclaimed original cast; but new leads Denis Lawson and Michelle Fairley have brought fresh impetus to the piece. Now you can test your relationship by buying two tickets for the price of one: simply ring the Duke of York's on 071-836 5122 and give the correct answer to these two questions. Isabel Lloyd
