Friday Foodie Flick... Julie and Julia

This movie is based on two books... the original book called Julie and Julia by Julie Powell and the one written by Julia Child, herself, entitled My Life in France.  Julia's book is fabulous and the movie is good but the first book... don't waste your time.  This is a rare case where I say the movie is better than the book... at least the Powell book.  

In celebration of Julia I recommend this movie... Meryl Streep does an amazing job as Julia and Amy Adams did a great job and who can resist Stanley Tucci as Julia's husband!  LOL  The movie is also directed in the classic style of Nora Ephron and is a great way to celebrate her career.... since we lost her recently, too.  

This is a great foodie movie and is part of my collection to be enjoyed over and over again!

  2. I love this film and Julia's book! And yes, Julia's husband in the film was dishy. Did you see him on Mr. Monk and the Actor? Hilarious!
