Maybe it’s because it’s nearing lunchtime as I write this, but the just-released trailer for August’s Julie & Julia made me feel like trekking to Whole Foods, restocking my pantry, and preparing a multi-course meal for eight — or maybe just upgrading my usual lunch of grilled cheese. It’s the first glimpse at Nora Ephron’s latest rom-com, starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child and Amy Adams as the office drone blogger inspired by the famous chef’s body of recipes, and it’s the frosting on my Must List cake this week. Streep’s energetic portrayal of Child comes off as comical but not a complete caricature (at least in the trailer), and Amy Adams has the ”relatable everywoman” schtick down pat (though I’m definitely not feeling the dowdy haircut).
