Julie & Julia with Fiona Zublin


There is a very clear narrative on Julie & Julia, Nora Ephron's final feature film, and it's this: the Julia Child portions of the movie are heavenly, and the Julie Powell side of the movie is both infuriating and a drag. American Girl In Paris correspondent Fiona Zublin returns to the podcast to defend Amy Adams' performance but ends up bashing it just like everyone else. Still, for a movie that is so uneven, so confusing, and so curiously lacking in stakes... why is it so much fun to watch, and why do we cry by the end?
