Julie & Julia, The Movie (taken from the film website)
Meryl Streep is Julia Child and Amy Adams is Julie Powel in writer-director Nora Ephron’s adaptation of two bestselling memoirs Powell’s Julie & Julia and My Life in France by Julia Child with Alex Prud’homme.
Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia intertwines the lives of two women who, though separated by time and space, are both at loose ends…until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible.
