Julie & Julia
After just seeing Julie & Julia, my stomach is still grumbling. The movie, based on “two true stories”, kept me smiling for most of the two hours it spans, probably due to the charisma and life Meryl Streep always seems to bring to the screen. (What can I say? I’m a fan)
Adapted from (the real-life) Julie Powell’s book Julie & Julia: My Year of Cooking Dangerously, the film takes on two paths. One follows the legendary Julia Child (Streep) through the development of her cooking career in France during the late 1940’s/early 1950’s and the other Julie Powell (Amy Adams) over the course of her year blogging and cooking her way through Julia Child’s cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking.
A perfect combination, nothing cures a boring day like good food and a good movie.
