'Julie & Julia'

This weekend I saw Julie & Julia which ranks as one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. Amy Adams will likely earn her third Oscar nomination; Meryl Streep her hundred and third nomination. Nora Ephron may get a nod for adapted screenplay. It’s impressive she could adapt two books into two separate storylines, yet make a seamless film. Though, the women’s lives do have parallels – both had loving, supportive husbands, aspirations that many laughed at, and a deep desire to see their passions in print, to name a few – and the stories eventually coalesce.

But the real reason I loved this film was more personal. It didn’t take long for me to realize I was Julie. Collapse )
