Seems like something she’d have been nominated for. Do you think she would have been if they held it back a year? I always thought it was kind of a dry film but viewed again I really like it. And Tracey Ullman is wonderful.
No. Plenty was a box office bomb and releasing it the following year would not have made any difference.
All the nominated actress’ films for 1986 made for money that Plenty did or would have had it been released in 86.
I’ve also preferred Streep’s work in Plenty over Out of Africa myself.
