Meryl Streep, who plays a woman who investigates a fake insurance policy in Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming comedy-drama “The Laundromat,” says that the film’s story exposes the corrupt systems present in our real world. “You can lament that these systems work and how people utilize loopholes that people find — clever people will always work around and find a way to not do their part,” Streep told Variety. “And they’ll be able to exploit a system that poor or less educated people will not be able to, will suffer. But everybody gets a vote, everybody can move the political needle, move the needle towards justice if you just demand it.”
