I think Alexandre Desplat is quickly becoming my favorite film composer, having done three of the best films this year, including JULIA AND JULIE, THE FANTASTIC MR. FOX, and COCO AVANT CHANEL.

The movie JULIA AND JULIE is quite entertaining. MerMeryl Streep shows her acting chops, playing a comic character without playing Julia Child as a parody. The whole cast is excellent, with Amy Adams, Stanley Tucci, and Jane Lynch as standouts. Nora Ephron's script and direction are very good, and the song choices work quite well. It's a very involving film, and a fun film to watch. Enjoy it. And, there's a lot of great food to look at!
