Talk about commitment. Lawrence Dai is a student at Northwestern University and by now, one of the world's leading experts on the movie Julie & Julia. A quick summary in case you've never seen the movie: Julie Powell (Amy Adams) decided to prepare all the recipes in legendary chef Julia Child's cookbook in one year and blog about the results. So the movie is a biopic of Child, but also an in-depth chronicle of Powell's efforts as well. Many people loved the half of the movie about Child and disliked the part about Powell.
So, our dear friend Lawrence decided to chronicle his opinions by blogging about watching a movie about a woman who blogs about cooking another lady's recipes. Got that? That's pretty much the premise of his experiment. Well, he's on day 94 now and still going strong. In recent days, he profiled the many loose ends that watching the movie stirs up for him, profiled the actress who played Julia Child's bridge teacher (EXTREMELY briefly) in the movie, and talked about his 20th birthday celebration (Julie and Julia style).
Let's give Lawrence some sense of purpose. Check out his blog right now.
