Three weeks ago I gave major props to the poster for Julie & Julia. Today the film's first trailer hit the web, and I'm digging everything except Amy Adams' awful 'do (yes, I'm shallow). Even if that's how Julie Powell styled her hair in real life, it's not like any of us would know; director (and producer and screenwriter) Nora Ephron should've taken some creative liberties on that front. Take a look and see if you agree:
I'm definitely getting the sense that the Julia segments are going to be much more enjoyable and interesting than the Julie-centric vignettes, aren't you? By the end of the video I was slightly annoyed with Powell's "woe is me, I'm having a quarter-life crisis!" shtick, which doesn't bode well for how her subplot will sit with audiences over the course of a full-length movie. However, I suppose Julie's story was destined to play second fiddle to Julia's. Because let's face it, there's just no topping Meryl Streep channeling Child's plucky personality or mimicking her unique voice. So I'm still planning to dig in to this one (insert groan here) on August 7th.
