Meryl Streep is Julia Child and Amy Adams is Julie Powell in writer-director Nora Ephron’s adaptation of two bestselling memoirs: Powell’s Julie & Julia and My Life in France by Julia Child with Alex Prud’homme.
Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia intertwines the lives of two women who, though separated by time and space, are both at loose ends…until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible.
“Julie & Julia is one of the gentlest, most charming American movies of the past decade.” – The New Yorker
“Streep completely captures the gangly six-foot-two woman who changed how America cooks, mimicking her attacks on both syllables and chicken carcasses, her breathless warble and the way she used her whole body as a punctuation mark, arms flailing. Child was often imitated but Streep lets us see her jubilant soul.” – The Toronto Star
