Julie & Julia
Print
Julie Powell is a frustrated insurance worker who wants to be a writer. Trying to find a challenge in her life, she decides to cook her way through Julia Child's 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking' in one year, and to blog about it. As Julie begins to find her groove as a cook, and her voice as a writer, the project takes on a life of its own. The project provides the struggling young woman with her life's purpose, to her very pleasant surprise. Julia Child has an amazing love affair with her dashing husband, Paul, all while embracing life and French food. Julie lovingly celebrates the life of one of American food's most influential and beloved figureheads. MPAA rating: PG-13; for brief strong language and some sensuality. CHV rating: PG; coarse language, language may offend.

I watched it quite a while back, not long after it was released, and really enjoyed it.
This past year, I got fascinated with how Amy Adams shows so much personality in her expressive face, and started looking for more of her stuff.
Decided to watch Julie and Julia again, hoping I wouldn't be bored.
This time, I also decided to add the English Subtitled Commentary to show, and it's AWESOME! *find it when you click "language options", in the main menu.
Those just add a cool extra bit of fun and info and entertainment!

While my husband and I liked the movie, we were highly disappointed at the disingenuous, cheap shots at Republicans. First, Mrs. Child's father is portrayed as an old wild-eyed crusty man. When Julie's boss said that if he was a Republican he'd fire her--we just looked at each other, incredulous. What kind of idiotic comemnt was that? And there was Senator McCarthy, getting ripped off for persecuting Mr. Child. What the movie "forgets" to explain is that McCarthy's committee followed a much earlier one--that investigated Hollywood types too, created by Bob Kennedy. McCarthy actually underestimated the number of commies who infested the FDR administration. And his committee NEVER investigated actors. (The Venona Project has yet to be completely decoded, but already gives a chilling account of the amount of communists infiltrated in the US.) Also McCarthy didn't belong to the HUAC: he was a Senator. When I got Julie & Julia I was under the impression it was made to entertain viewers, not as another brainwashing left wing propaganda movie from Hollywood.

Two terrific loves stories, one terrific life story, great acting almost all around, some wit and humour. One to see again, and a great date movie.

“Julie & Julia” was an entertaining film. Yet, I was more interested in Julia’s story and would have been quite satisfied with a movie that was just a biographical account of the renowned chef.

Not my fav from Meryl Streep!

Interesting, sweet and a bit funny. Meryl Streep does a great job as Julia Child, a woman with an infectious zest for life. The relationships that both women in the movie have with their husbands are very sweet. Really enjoyable.

Amy Adams' character is kind of sad to me...she has nothing else going on so she decides to blog about cooking recipes out of a cookbook. I enjoyed the parts about Julia's life in Europe more than Julie in New York in the present time.

Julia was an inspiration to a lot of people so it was nice to have the story told in this way rather than as a straight biography of her life. The acting was wonderful, Meryl was a great choice to play Julia, she nailed it!

Julia Child's story of her start in the cooking profession is intertwined with blogger Julie Powell's 2002 challenge to cook all the recipes in Child's first book.
