A year of cooking dangerously.

I want to see this movie! I love Julia Child.

Julie & Julia.
trailer here
Meryl Streep, Stanley Tucci and Amy Adams are in this movie, which almost makes it worth seeing regardless of the plot.
It looks really good.

It is based on two true stories set in two different times. One half of the story is based on 29 year old Julie Powell (Amy Adams). In August 2002, frusted with her cubicle working lifestyle Julie begins a "deranged assignment" to cook all 524 recipes in Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking in 365 days. She chronicles her failures and successes in a blog, which was later turned into a book. I read the book and it was pretty entertaining!

The film also covers the years Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and her husband Paul (Stanley Tucci) spent in Pari in the 40s and 50s.


  1. I've heard about this but haven't read the book yet. As you said though, the cast alone is worth seeing this movie! I'll definitely watch it when it comes out!

  2. Ou sound intriguing!!!!

    I really really want to thank you over this sweet comment on my "I LOST MY BLOG PICTURES" post!!! It really meant a lot to me!!!

  3. I'm reading this now, and I love it so far. I agree, as long as it has Amy Adams and Meryl Streep in it, I'd see it regardless of the story.

  4. This one is on my list for sure! It is going to be amazing!!

  5. This movie looks really good. I may go see it. I love the previews for it.

  6. I have been looking forward to this movie ever since I saw the trailer a few weeks ago. Gosh, it might even inspire me to start cooking. Lol. We'll see!
    Thanks for the link to Julie's blog, by the way. Cool to see how it began!

  7. Me too...can't wait either!
    Adore Julia, she was a power house, full of passion & inspiration...RIP Julia!


  8. Oh wow, I think this looks amazing!

  9. This movie looks wonderful! Anything with Meryl Streep and Amy Adams is a must-see for me!

  10. I can't wait to see this movie! I've got to read the book, too!
