First Taste of 'Julie & Julia'
We’ve watched plenty of movies based on books (there are just too many to count). TV shows, too. (“Roots” and “The No. 1 Ladies’ Detective Agency” come to mind.) And now we’re reading books based on blogs (Stuff White People Like, I Can Has Cheezburger, Gluten-Free Girl, to name a few). But with the imminent release of “Julie & Julia,” it may very well be the first movie based on a book and a blog.
Yesterday, Columbia Pictures released the official trailer of the film, starring Meryl Streep as Julia Child and Amy Adams as Julie Powell, the desk jockey who, back in 2002, embarked on a year-long adventure of cooking her way through “Mastering the Art of French Cooking,” the classic tome by Child, Louisette Berthole and Simone Beck. She chronicled her adventures in her blog called Julie/Julia Project, which morphed into “Julie and Julia: 365 Days, 524 Recipes, 1 Tiny Apartment Kitchen,” which Nora Ephron has adapted for the screen.
Ephron’s film is a nod to both Powell’s memoir and “My Life in France,” Child’s posthumous biography co-written with her grand nephew Alex Prud’Homme. The movie is scheduled to debut in theaters Aug. 7, but in the meantime, check out the trailer and weigh in: Do you want more Julie/Julia on your plate or have you had your fill? And how do you rate Streep's impersonation of Child?
