    Default "Julie & Julia"

    I saw it last night. Meryl Streep does a great Julia Child. I liked
    the Js' husbands, Paul Child and Eric Powell, too. And I'll never look
    at a cannelloni shell again without recalling the movie. :-)

    If accurate, it is an interesting story about publication of "Mastering
    the Art of French Cooking" and Louise Berthold's role (or lack thereof)
    in it. I'll bet book sales are about to soar.

    Glad to hear it's enjoyable. I (and all three daughter-untis) want to
    hit this.

    Well, sounds like you enjoyed it. <g> I want to see it too... but have
    no idea if and/or when it will hit our neck of the woods.

    More than likely... but maybe that's not such a bad thing - it might
    encourage a few more folks to actually do some cooking...

    I don't know if the movie is accurate or not, as I haven't seen it
    yet, but Julia's book, My Life in France, is a very interesting read.
    That, plus her biography, gives a detailed look at what she endured
    getting Mastering published.

    Oh, good, I was checking on your page to see if you liked the
    movie. I look forward to seeing it one of these days.

    I really enjoyed that book too. Great reading and she had such a cute
    personality, and just adored her husband. Very sweet.

    I need to see whether it is around. I decided my daughter would
    not appreciate it, even if she deigned to go, so I found someone
    else to go with.

    I hope it's in one of your theaters now. I'm glad you'll be going.

    This is true. Did you see "A Cry in the Dark" (a.k.a. "Evil Angels")?

    I bought the book "My Life in France" about 3 weeks ago and am finally
    just getting around to reading it. It's really been interesting and
    gives you many insights into her life.

    I used to love watching her tv show as she always made me laugh. The
    movie isn't here yet in Anchorage, but I sure want to see it when it
    gets here.

    Her performance is amazing, copying Julia's mannerisms, accent,
    movements and love of food. Amy Adams turns in a convincing
    performance also, the movie is simply terrific and I can't imagine
    any foodie not appreciating it. I saw it this afternoon, and I am
    now sitting here trying to figure out what to cook this evening as
    nothing could seem better than what I just spent two hours watching.

    For what it is worth, and I am not sure this is true of all Borders
    bookstores, they had a boxed set of Mastering on the bargain racks,
    for approximately $20. Looked like the hardcovers... If so, this is
    a good bargain for anyone that doesn't have these classics...and wants
    to buy them.

    For what it's worth, Meryl Streep is a real actress unlike a lot of
    "stars". I haven't seen the movie and I might be a bit discouraged from
    the reviews but I will go to watch Streep any day!

    Yeah, I was shocked when I saw the trailers. I'm not a creepy
    Streepy fan, but she was just too too good. I was amazed by even the
    trailer snippets. I think Julia would be, too.

    My question: Just what is the premise of the film? I thought it was gonna
    be about JC, but who is this other young punk and how does she fit in?
    Gonna be awhile before it hits Nose Pick, CO.

    Thanks for the review I want to see the movie too, but I'll wait
    until it comes out on DVD when the library readily has it. The two
    actresses have acted together a few times before I believe, and I think
    this particular movie is interesting because aren't there no scenes when
    the two ladies appear together?

    Sky, who's copy of said volumes are ragged!
