Movie Review: Julie and Julia

Julie and Julia is the story of Julie Powell, who decides to spend a year cooking every recipe in Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" and in so doing discovers her own passion and purpose. We also follow the story of Julia Child herself, from her life in Paris with her husband Paul. her first cooking lessons, and the eventual publication of her classic cookbook.

I liked this movie, it was warm and funny. I loved seeing the relationship of Julia and Paul Child and how she was ambitious and independent yet also deeply connected to her husband.

I learned a couple of lessons from this movie. Find something you have a passion for and become great at it. Striving for excellence in something you love will make your life shine. Perfection isn't necessary. The best marriages are between friends who encourage each other to follow their own dreams while building their lives together. Most importantly, share your life with your loved ones over delicious meals prepared with love and enjoyment.

Bon App├ętit'!

I really liked this movie too, Anne. There was a lot to think about here, and I really enjoyed the insights into Julia Childs life. And as someone who enjoys writing, I liked seeing how Julie developed her passions for writing about her cooking. Also it was amusing to see that the field of French cooking was deemed unsuitable for women, and that she had to work so hard to break into it! She must have been one interesting lady. I enjoyed your review. Art
