Julie & Julia Directed by: Nora Ephron Cast: Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, Stanley Tucci, Chris Messina Running Time: 1 hr 50 mins Rating: PG-13 Release Date: August 7, 2009
Plot: Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia tells the story of how cooking star Julia Child (Streep) got started, and also how Julie (Adams) decided to cook and blog through Child’s entire cookbook in one year.
Who’s It For? Foodies will be pleased, and this is one of those rare, feel-good (in general) movies where you just keep thinking, “nice.”
Expectations: I like my history in fiction form, plus the added twist of getting another drama thrown in there with one of my favorites (Amy Adams) I was looking forward to this one.
