Julie & Julia

I had the pleasure of seeing Julie & Julia last night. It was a very enjoyable film; the two story lines were well-meshed. Although it was to be expected, Julie's constant talk of Julia got to be be bit much by the end of the film. Meryl Streep's performance was just spectacular! She was a joy to watch, and they way she expressed Julia's sheer and utter joy with not only cooking, but her life was uplifting. I've seen quite a few movies that draw me in, but this is definitely the best. It made me feel happy and joyous without being smarmy.

I've wanted to see it since I saw the trailer, and everything I've heard since has been good. It's definitely on my "will see eventually one way or another" list. :)
