“Julie and Julia” Meryl Streep and Amy Adams

Just in from watching the new movie, “Julie and Julia” starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams.  Four out of Five Stars.  Four out of Five popcorn boxes.  A-.

Meryl Streep is in peak form as the icon Julia Child.  Her humor and sense of Child are the driving force of this movie.  While the two major stars never share the screen, their stories are remarkably intertwinded.  Amy Adams is at home in this genre and connects with charachter Julie as deeply as Streep does Child.  These two women feel this movie.  And the audience feels it because of them.

Behind every great woman is an even greater man.  Stanley Tucci is Paul Child, her husband, her confidant, her lover, her biggest fan, her friend.  Chris Messina plays the modern man behind Julie.  He does it quite well.  Definitely the most real character in the movie.

The movie based on the true story of writer Julie Powell.  She blogs as she takes “365 days to cook 536 recipes”; cooking her way through Julia Child’s famous book Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

Great movie and great acting.  Oscar worthy?  Probably….
