I myself had never heard of Julia Child prior to viewing the trailer for this film, which is sad, because she is known as an amazing woman by many.
This has newly become one of my favorite roles of Meryl Streep.
She truly has a gift and is quite proficient at it.
She is undeniably genuine. One cannot help but believe her characters she plays, and think "How can this be an act?"
She instills awe in her audience with flawless, effortless precision.
Had I ever pursued a career in the performing arts, she would have been my inspiration.
Anyways, back to the movie....
It is the story of two women, exploring the art of cooking and the healing it brings to all aspects of life.
Julie (Amy Adams) is a young, working, aspiring writer and wife living in Queens, NY who is for lack of a better word, dissatisfied with life at the moment.
However, she discovers that no matter how horrible her days become, cooking always made everything better.
She then devises a plan to cook her way through Julia Child's 700 page cookbook, blogging all the while, sharing trials and triumphs she may face. And trials, she most definitely endures.
There are many moments of laughter and silliness that seep into this captivating story, and others that depict such delectable delicacies, your taste buds will quiver with desire.
That was one of the reasons I wanted to see this film. I love cooking food and watching movies about cooking food (such as...No Reservations), and because of this film, I will probably be on a recipe frenzy for days!
Regardless if you like cooking or not, this is a charming film that not only entertains to the end, but has great ideas to discuss afterward. There are many life lessons to be learned from it, but don't let that scare you away. Just watch it, you won't be disappointed!
