Julia & Julia - A new movie with Meryl Streep

Julia Child (born Julia Carolyn McWilliams August 15, 1912 – August 13, 2004) was an American chef, author and television personality, who introduced French cuisine and cooking techniques to the American mainstream, through her many cookbooks and television programs. Her most famous works are the 1961 cookbook Mastering the Art of French Cooking and, showcasing her sui generis television persona, the series The French Chef, which premiered in 1963.

In a new film due to be released in August this year Meryl Streep plays Julia child in this film writen and directed by Nora Ephron. The film intertwines the lives of Julia Child and Julia Powel (played by Amy Adams) and is based on her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

This is certainly a film I will add to must list.
