Meryl Streep and Amy Adams Wrestle in Butter

Nora Ephron -- for all the accolades she gets for directing Sleepless in Seattle and even You've Got Mail -- hasn't had much success directing a movie that didn't have Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan both in it (see Bewitched, Lucky Numbers, Mixed Nuts and Michael.). But she may have finally found the cast and the story to resurrect her star. Julie and Julia stars Amy Adams and Meryl Streep. Adams' Julie is a lowly and aimless cubicle worker who decides to write a book about cooking all of the recipes in a Julia Childs' book. The lives of the two people are explored simultaneously, cutting back and forth between Julie's attempts to write a book and Julia's experiences writing hers. Ephron works from her own script, which was based on Julie Powell's book of the same title, which was based on two books: Julia Childs' My Life in France and Alex Prud'homme's book of the same name.

It looks cute. Frothy and kind of insubstantial (par for the course for Ephron), but cute all the same. Adams and Streep can do wonders for a director.
