I just saw Julie and Julia, and in four words: so amazing and so delicious.
This film allows you to dive into the lives of two great women, rather than get only a peek. If you cook or write, this movie will make you feel like you can do anything. And if you don't, well, you'll want to start. Everything they both make will make your stomach growel, even if it's full of popcorn.
The stories are interesting (that they're true makes it even better) and the fact that Amy Adams and Meryl Streep are both totally absorbed in the characters make it extraordinary. The acting goes beyond immitation and both actresses become their characters. Never for a minute did I think I was watching Meryl Streep ... she's the real thing! :)
And Meryl Streep is brilliantly hilarious! The voice especially was completely hysterical, but everything about her just radiated funny. The little old ladies behind me didn't stop laughing for a minute.
The combination of Julie and Julia's stories and how they paralelled together keeps your attention and will keeo you wrapped up in the story.
This movie will make you laugh, smile, feel inspired, and fill you up. But be prepared to crave some French cooking :)
