Does Meryl Streep Get Any Better?

She seems to be able to inhabit just about any character she wants to. Just returned from the movie Julie and Julia and was entertained yet again by Streep's amazing talent to capture the voice and physicality of a totally different human being, in this case Julia Child. I enjoyed the acting performances, the weaving of the two plots and the main characters' relationships with their spouses. Just seeing two married couples on the big screen was refreshing. Made me want to come home and cook something really really good for Ben! Maybe I'll go shopping tomorrow and try to tackle a new recipe. Other notables include the fabulous red-head Amy Adams, the Parisian setting, and many humorous moments, one of which involves poaching eggs. Have you ever tried that?
