“Writer, director, editor, public speaker, occasional actor” Adam Goldman has had a brilliant idea. He’s re-cut the movie Julie & Julia to eliminate the “Julie” parts, leaving only the Julia Child scenes. The result is an hour-long video called & Julia.
Julia Child herself disliked Julie Powell’s blog and subsequent book. In both the film and in real life, Julia is a far more interesting character that Julie. In the movie, Amy Adams gives a solid performance as the somewhat unlikable Julie, but it’s Meryl Streep’s Julia that soars.
