Julie & Julia

Based on Two True Stories

Julie & Julia is structured as a two-part culinary adventure: The movie cuts back and forth between the true-life stories of two quirkily ambitious, self-invented strivers from vastly different eras. (It’s based on both of the women’s memoirs.) There’s Julia Child, who devotes herself, in the 1950s & ’60s, to co-writing, and finding a publisher for, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, which will be the very first French cookbook ever written in English. And there’s Julie Powell (Amy Adams), a post-9/11 cubicle worker with the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation, who in 2002 decides to save herself, and her husband (Chris Messina), from the doldrums by retreating after work to their cramped kitchen in Queens and cooking every recipe in that book – all 524 of them – in one year, while writing a blog diary about the experience. You could say that Julie & Julia is the first Nora Ephron movie that isn’t a romantic comedy. Only that wouldn’t be quite right. Not only is the film tartly witty, it’s about a very deep love affair: the one between Julia Child and the endless dinner party she thinks life can be, a party Julie extends, with ardent and neurotic intensity, into the present day. – Owen Glieberman, Entertainment Weekly
