The temperature soared to 93 degrees today, and humidity almost unbearable.
Too hot to be working outside, and so when I received a phone call from my granddaughter inviting me to accompany her and watch the new Meryl Streep movie, I jumped at the chance.
Based on two true stories Julie and Julia is a delightful story which intertwines the life of two women. Julia Child, played by Meryl Streep, and Amy Adams, as Julie Powell.
Julia Child (Meryl Streep) is an absolute riot in her role as the American housewife living with her husband in Paris, France. She enrolls in the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu cooking school, and from there her future is set.
Julie Powell (Amy Adams), is the young New York newlywed, working a nine to five job in the city, who decides to set herself a parallel with Julia Child, and cook every recipe in her cook-book, while simultaneously, writing a daily blog about the recipes.
A lovely afternoon spent in the company of a loved one, inside an air conditioned theater...life doesn't get any better ;)
