The cast of Evening, a drama based on Susan Minot's best-selling novel, reads like a movie director's wildest fantasy. Despite the presence of Meryl Streep, Vanessa Redgrave, and Glenn Close, it's Streep's 23-year-old daughter, Mamie Gummer, we've got our eye on. But Gummer isn't the only Hollywood daughter vying for the title of Next Big Thing…
