Julie & Julia


Satisfying tale of love, ambition, and great food


Julie & Julia is a delectable cinematic concoction about two food-loving women. There's Julie Powell (Adams), a New Yorker experiencing almost-thirty angst, married, living in an apartment over a pizzeria in Queens, and commuting to downtown Manhattan for an unglamorous career, who decides to cook and blog her way out of misery. And then there's Julia Child (Streep), who found herself at loose ends as an American in Paris and wound up revolutionizing the way we think about dinner.
