Meryl Streep is brilliant in the Julia portions of the movie. Really wish that there could have been an all Julia Child movie; that would have been absolutely perfect. But I'll take the awesomeness that was the "Julia" part and leave out the "Julie &". Meryl is well on to her 90th Oscar nomination for this role. Unless Mélanie Laurent manages to a) get nominated for Inglorious Basterds since her character was the main character, dammit and b) somehow win as a dark horse, Meryl may have the Lead Actress win locked up and I'm kind of okay with that.
Whatever, I liked that he learned the importance of cooking and doing ~domestic~ activities (cleaning! not fucking women's work, thanks) and began taking care of the kids (his younger siblings). Considering most portrayal of men in the home kitchen are all OMG LOL MEN DUNT COOK GUD, I thought that was damn refreshing.
I hope you enjoy that my review of Julie & Julia ends on such a tangent.
In conclusion, BEES.
Or not, as I have kind of a point in that I will be making a post later on about a self-inflicted project that I am about to embark on for my own selfish interests but it will include picspams and recipes and hey, who doesn't like tasty food? Oh yeah, it's a ~TASTE~ journey.
