Went to a sneak preview last night and thoroughly enjoyed this film. This film is based on two memoirs, Julia Child's "My Life in France" and Julie Powell's "Julie & Julia". The two stories intertwine beautifully. It was quiet, warm and funny. I truly appreciated the love between Julia Child and her husband. Meryl Streep is fabulous as Julia Child and I will not be surprised if she wins some kind of award for her portrayal. It is always interesting to see how one person can influence another and how that can cascade to wonderful opportunities. Seriously, the movie really motivated me to wanting to try Julia Child's beef stew recipe too bad I can spell it properly in french.
