Julie & Julia

Just watched Julie & Julia today with the wife. Very good film. I quite enjoyed it. And though I’m not a fan of Meryl Streep I found her portrayal of Julia Child wonderful. The entire way the film wove Julia Child’s life in with Julie Powell’s was excellent. Well worth seeing.

However, I’d love to see Julia Child’s My Life in France made into a movie in its own right, with Streep playing Child again. Parts of that book are the counterpart to the Julie Powell portion of Julie and Julia however the Julia parts are much more interesting and much more entertaining. In fact, the story is so interesting I’m tempted to pick up a copy of Julia’s book just to read it and get to know her better. I always enjoyed her cooking shows, especially with her good friend Jacques Pepin. I’m sure it would be a welcome diversion from my usually heavy technical readings.
