Julie and Julia
I saw this movie last night and I would highly recommend it. Meryl Streep does a fantastic job of being Julia Child (for those of you who remember watching any of her TV shows). And I believe, it very true to who she was.
A couple of years ago, I found the autobiography of Julia Child at my favorite Frenchies store. I've always loved to cook, and I remembered seeing Julia on PBS many times and was, of course, fascinated not only by her cooking but also by her quirky ways and her funny voice. So, I snapped it up for $1.85 and read it.
I fell in love with Julia Child! She had an amazing life, was mad about her husband and was, in my opinion, a liberated woman far ahead of her time. Such energy and spunk and "joie de vivre"! And the fact that she only came into her own when she turned 50!
This was a really fun movie with lots of laughs. Go see it!
