I’ve been wanting to see Julie and Julia for weeks now. After a very busy Sunday, we made it a point to go to the movies after a stop at Homebase. We were very well behaved and gave popcorn and ice cream a miss.
I love food and cooking, and have only recently started blogging, so I found that I could relate to the storyline. Meryl Streep and Stanley Tucci were brilliant as Julia and Paul Child. I last saw them in another favourite movie of mine, The Devil Wears Prada. I found Amy Adams character Julie Powell very likeable, and could relate to her frustrations and joys that trying out a new recipe can bring. I wasn’t bowled over by her husband Eric’s (played by Chris Messina) table manners though!
I enjoyed the movie, and I’m glad I caught it on the big screen instead of waiting a few months for the DVD.
