Aug 17th 2010 1:42PM Agree. Also, Julia was too old for the role or her men seemed too young. The relationships were not believable, lacking in chemistry, as if they'd rushed through each scene. Liz's role needed a fresh thirty something, not a mid forties grand dame of film. Julia looked like a queen bee, with everyone else catering to her, making her look and feel good. Also, scenes like the elegant woman feeding the dog or the young girl in Naples sticking a middle finger looked like caricatures, not the real people I'd seen in my travels. And who can believe that Javier's character had not been with a woman in ten years? Please. I fidgeted throughtout a movie I really wanted to enjoy as I had the book.
