Who Knew Meryl Streep Would Be A Perfect Julia Child?
I guess I'm the last person to see the film, Julie and Julia/, but that's what I did this afternoon. That was half fabulous movie and have inane protracted whine. Is it necessary to designate which is which - OK, I'll give my opinion - the Julia Child part of the movie was terrific. It made me wonder why they even added the other part, which I will fast forward through the next time I watch this. Actually, if they rereleased this as just Julia, I'd have to own it. I liked it that well. But not to be confused with another movie called "Julia" which Meryl Streep was also in. The Lillian Hellman smuggles money to aid her girlfriend Julia fight fascism story. (She must have been in her 20's, since I was in my 20's when I saw that movie.) That was back in the days when just having Meryl in the cast told you that the movie would make you feel bad before you left the theatre. When did Meryl Streep turn into a "feel-good" actress?
