If you have not gone to see Julie and Julia yet, get yourself to a theater pronto!
It was delicious fun! It was so wonderful to see Julia Child's life acted out on screen, at times I just sat there giggling to myself. I've read so many books about her life and ever since my brother bought me a DVD about Julia Child and a compendium of her recipes, I've been slightly obsessed with her. I love watching her cooking shows and my idea of a good time on a Friday night is to pop in Julia and Jacques, kick back with Jason, and laugh at the two chefs arguing over how much garlic to put in the stew.
It's been a while since I've loved a movie as much as I love this one. It was wonderful to see Julia's life on screen and to see loving and humorous examples of married life depicted on screen. Afterward, while talking about the movie, my friend noted that a lot of the time in movies, the married couple is having problems, someone is having an affair, etc... It was so refreshing to see two marriages shown to be so positive, uplifting, supportive, and loving.
I left the theater with a huge smile on my face and a deep burning desire to make boeuf bourguignon. And I will make it, once we move to our new apartment next weekend...
