Julie & Julia

(USA, 2009, 119 minutes)

In 1948, Julia Child arrives in Paris with her diplomat husband and, dazzled by French cuisine, goes on to write what became the essential cookbook on French cooking; in 2002, Julie Powell, a frustrated New Yorker about to hit 30 whose life has not gone according to her plan, decides to cook her way through the book in one year as a project to find her true self again. Utterly charming star comedy cleverly intertwining two real-life stories – Powell's and Child's — into a smart, moving portrait of different women brought together by the joy of cooking, with delightful performances from both stars.
