The news just broke that Meryl Streep will play Julia Child in the movie version of Julie and Julia, Julie Powell's blog-memoir about cooking her way through Child's epic, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. The movie sounds like it could be a lot of fun, with Nora Ephron in the director's chair. But can Meryl carry off the role of our Patron Saint? We discussed it in-house, and the consensus seems to be - perhaps. Our features editor, Michelle Shih, always apt to notice the details, remembered a scene in The Hours in which Streep deftly separated egg whites from egg yolks by letting the whites run through her fingers.
