Julie and Julia

Tuffy P wanted to see this film. I resisted, but today agreed to go.

On the basis of Meryl Streep's very fine performance as Julia, I found the film charming. I would have preferred it if it were Julia's story without the Julie part, but I also understand that the Julie part is the hook that got the piece made.

I remember Julia Child's television shows very well. I watched them with fascination growing up. Let me say that I have made Beef Bourguignon and it rocks.

Julia Child's has a whole section in the Spy Museum in D.C.

I completely agree with you Mr. Anchovy. I didn't really want to see this either but was convinced by a friend. Turns out, it was pretty good but would have loved to see more of the movie focus on Streep's Julia. I found Julie a bit on the annoying side most of the time.

WC, I hope you get to see this soon! I think you'd enjoy it.

Here is something you and your visitors might enjoy...if you haven't already seen it. Kind of a bunch of stuff from NYTs about cooking shows...
