I'm a fan of Julia Child. Loved her, loved watching her show on public television even when I didn't really understand what she was doing.
A couple years ago, I read her Biography "My Life in France." Immediately after, I read the most entertaining book "Julie and Julia."
Tomorrow, the movie "Julie and Julia" opens. Nora Ephron directed it and it merges both of the books. Meryl Streep plays Julia Child, and does so to a T. Amy Adams plays Julie Powell. Unsure if she plays her to a T but I'm sure she does a nice job.
Here's the preview of the film.
