Meryl Streep is Julia Child and Amy Adams is Julie Powell in writer-director Nora Ephron's adaptation of two bestselling memoirs: Powell's "Julie & Julia" and "My Life in France," by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme.
Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia intertwines the lives of two women who, though separated by time and space, are both at loose ends... until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible.
Juxtaposes the difficulties faced by two women with similar interests who lived in different times and places. The younger one draws on the experience of the older to make sense--and some measure of success--of her own life. The act of re-creating the recipes in the famous cookbook as faithfully as possible, within a limited time frame, provides not only a challenge to the woman in the modern era, but also the link with the older woman who originally created the recipes. A thoroughly charming premise, and enjoyable performances.
it was so amazing i saw it 7 times
I really enjoyed the movie. I thought Meryl was excellent and funny. If you don't love food or the kitchen, don't even try to go...Simple and charming, nothing unreal. The european touch is my favourite I am from there...but I have a but too long I agree.Don't go hungry!
