JULIE & JULIA WILL SATISFY YOUR HUNGER FOR AN ENTERTAINING MOVIE
Julia Child’s infatuation with mid-century Paris and the city’s cuisine makes for a delicious true story about her life there in the delightful “Julie & Julia.” Meryl Streep is thoroughly convincing as the towering and enthusiastic Julia and Stanley Tucci is endearing as her supportive husband. Their eventful life in France is serious competition for Amy Adams’ contrasting life in modern New York, but Amy is up for the challenge. All in all, the movie is a triumph for Nora Ephron – we thought mostly women would love this movie, but men seem to like it just as much. We walked out of the movie craving beef bourguignon. And Julia would be proud to hear that her cookbooks have hit the best seller list again.
