Ms. Streep’s performance alone makes this film worthwhile–in recent years she has really shown her great talent as a comedian (Adaptation, Devil Wears Prada, this film). She has great comic timing, and always goes just far enough for the laugh, and usually not too far that it feels staged or unnatural.
From the reviews I read, I was really expecting not to like the “Julie” half of this movie–but I was pleasantly surprised. I read both “Julie and Julia” and “My Life in France” earlier this summer, and I have to confess that I didn’t love the Julie Powell book. Amy Adams really brings this character to life and makes you care about her (more so, I think than the book did). One problem with the balance in this project is that Julia Child did something really important for cooking in America, and so her story is inherently interesting. Julie Powell wrote a book. That became a movie. Add to that the fact that the heavy hitters in the film all live on the Julia side–Streep, Stanley Tucci, and a great cameo by Jane Lynch–and the deck feels fully stacked. Full credit to Amy Adams and Chris Messina, then, for making us care about the half of the film that teetered on the edge of the perfunctory.
This film is all the more remarkable in that it is so rare to see a film these days that just revels in joie-de-vivre. I’m sure a lot of the rough edges of Julia’s personality are smoothed over–but some of the stressful moments are there. I just felt so much affection for Streep’s Julia Child in this movie–and I laughed repeatedly and heartily at her antics. A fun time at the movies–which is a rarer pleasure than it should be.
Norah Ephron is nothing if not courageous. I say this because she allowed her name to remain on the credits of Mixed Nuts, a film that made Raise The Titanic look like Citizen Kane. Indeed food seems to figure prominently in her oeuvre at least in terms of titles – Candy, Mixed Nuts – but now she gives us the real thing and returns to form with this more or less factual story of two housewife-cooks, both of whom wrote about cooking and became celebrities. You need to be good to go up against Meryl Streep and Amy Adams IS good but perhaps not yet in Streep’s class. Interestingly – and arguably wisely – Ephron never allows them to share a scene; this is true to the facts but as we know better writers than Ephron have ‘allowed’ real historical personages to share at least one scene in the interests of drama – think Elizabeth the Ist and Mary Queen Of Scots. Be that as it may this is a definite feelgood movie with perhaps strange overtones – several references to Senator Joseph McCarthy and his influence in more or less demoting Child’s diplomat husband. On the other hand there ARE some scenes filmed in Paris. What more do you want.
