Our children were out of town so we waited to see Julie and Julia. We listened to the advice that we should not go hungry. After a quick and yummy dinner of Thai food, we bought our tickets and found great seats in a local stadium-seating theater. We all love Meryl Streep and our youngest children adore Amy Adams.
What can I say about this movie? It is a definite “must-see!” Not only does Meryl Streep who plays Julia Child, entertain, make the audience emit cries of “Awhhhhhh” and absolutely embody her character, but the movie serves as a depiction of a good marriage, the historical discrepancies that existed in the culinary world between men and women, and a glimpse into parts of what life working for the Foreign Service and world-wide embassies was like. Meryl Streep’s performance is flawless as far as her voice, accent, body language, and believability as Julia Child.
So, let’s hear from you after you have seen this delightful movie!
