Julie & Julia
OK it's 10:30PM and I just got home from seeing a preview of Julie & Julia and it was great, I mean really great! Meryl Streep was, of course, fabulous as Julia Child. Amy Adams redeemed herself to me after, what was for me a miss, as Amelia Earhart in Night at The Museum 2. The story was great and that it was about a blogger didn't hurt any either.
This is a movie written and directed by Nora Ephron who I loved in the 90's, but have not connected with in the 2000's (Bewitched and Hanging Up) hope to see more like this from her in the 10's.
I think everyone should get to the theatre as soon as this opens August 7. I'd write more but I have to go break into my mother's house now, steal her copy of Mastering The Art of French Cooking and start trying to cook some things. My Fourth of July party might have just gotten a whole lot more elaborate...
Here's the trailer to watch. Enjoy!
