I seem to have taken a long break from Spark, and didn't even realize how long it had been until I looked at the date on this blog. September 26????
I watched Julie and Julia for the second time last night, and so I am inspired to get back to the blog. That is an absolutely wonderful movie from so many angles. The food photography is fantastic, the weaving in of the two stories is creative, and the acting superb. To see a positive take on marriage in a movie is highly unusual.
The first time I watched it in the theater and loved it because it was about human relationships. Now, I watched it on DVD, and it was great to view the "extras," and see how Nora Ephron made the movie, and hear Meryl Streep and Amy Adams talk about it. The fact that all of it was true makes it even more interesting.
