Summary Note Based on the actress Carrie Fisher's bestselling autobiographical novel, Postcards From The Edge is a wickedly witty expose of the life in the Hollywood fast lane. In a brilliant comic performance, Meryl Streep stars as Suzanne Vale, a wisecracking, vulnerable actress determined to jump start her failing career. As her ageing movie star mother, Shirley MacLaine, offers the definitive portrait of Hollywood's gutsy glamour queens in scenes spiked with razor-edged humour and searing honesty. Dennis Quaid and an all-star cast offer a bird's-eye view of Hollywood's has-beens and wanna-bes. Funny and uncomprimising, Postcards From The Edge dishes the Tinseltown dirt with style and wit, serving up a delicious behind-the-scenes comedy that no film lover can resist.
