Nora Ephron's love letter to Julia Child is only one half of this darling story. Julia Child, as portrayed by the ever-wonderful Meryl Streep, was a big women with a big personality. Amy Adams is Julie Powell, a New Yorker who has taken on the gargantuan task of cooking her way through Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" in one year while she blogs about her experience. Julie & Julie are both real women who are blessed with loving, supportive husbands, affectionately portrayed by Stanley Tucci and Chris Messina. (The relationships these four portray are probably the best thing about the movie. No one is perfect, but they are perfect for each other. Marital discord is the subject of so many films and television shows, so it's a breath of fresh air to watch these couples act as though they genuinely like one another.)
Wonderful performances and balanced storytelling allow you to get lost in the worlds of both women. Food may be the centerpiece of the film, but love and determination and a refusal to sit back and let life happen to them is the common thread that ties both women -- and these stories -- together.
