Julia and Julie is the second Meryl Streep film with Amy Adams. It’s directed by Huffington Post blogger Nora Ephron, who also wrote the screenplay. It’s based on a book by Julia Powell who wrote a blog on Salon.com about cooking her way through the entire Julia Child‘s cook book.
Got all that?
Salon is featured prominently through out the film. Second only to the food and the two functional relationships of the main characters.
We say Julia and Julia is the Patterson clip for loyal and adoring (yet not cardboard) husbands. There have been many sightings but never before have they been caught on film.
Anyway, the question is, is this the end of the onslaught of “gimmick” memoirs? There was a solid five years where everyone was giving up something or taking up something for a year and writing about it. Will this blogger-heavy near-perfect movie mark the death of that trend or a new emergence?
