Based on two true stories! Meryl Streep is Julia Child and Amy Adams is Julie Powell in writer-director Nora Ephron's adaptation of two best-selling memoirs: Powell's Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia child with Alex Prud'homme.
Julia Child, the wife of an American Foreign Serviceman who spent much of his professional life in , is not one to sit around playing cards. She takes cookery lessons in with limited success at first, but once accomplished decided to create the definitive French cook book for American housewives, "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". Published in 1961, it has become one of the best-loved cook books in American households. Fast forward to 2002, and Julie Powell decides to attempt to cook all the recipes in Childs' book in one year and blog about it.
What makes this film memorable and pleasurable, above all, is the ebullient performance of Meryl Streep as Julia Child, unlikely culinary trailblazer and TV star. Philippa Hawker The Age ( )
As food movies go ... this one may be a little too rich but it's full of delights. Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald
Ebullient, witty, and wonderfully warm-hearted ... a celebration of how to live life to the full. Ruth Hessey MovieTime, ABC Radio National
Deliciously funny & warming fare, for which the amazing Meryl deserves her ridiculously overdue third Oscar. Angie, Empire Magazine
