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!

All I can tell you is that it is great. The way they interweave the two story lines is brilliant. All the food looks delicious and is beautifully shot. It really makes you want to go home and start cooking. At the very least see an early show and make dinner reservations at a really good french restaurant for after.

Now I REALLY hate Julie. I read the book last year and I was jealous. Now the movie? With MS and AA? Forget about it. Seething.

I don't remember that "Showtime picked up my blog as a miniseries" line being in the book, by the way.

Sorry Kim,
If it makes you feel any better I never read the book. My illiterate ways spreads joy near and far.
