I enjoyed this movie very much, although the plot was pretty much a disjointed mess. The story was cute and lots of great performances.
I loved Julia Child, and I love Meryl Streep, so that was a match made in heaven. I don’t think her performance was Oscar worthy, but the Academy and I seldom see eye-to-eye on these things. Interesting that Julia was 6’2” and Meryl is 5’6″, so I think that Meryl spent a lot of time walking on 8-inch boxes.
The authentic Julie/Julia Project blog is still up on Slate.
