I've seen this film last week, and it is really good - loads of mouth watering scenes too !

for those who don't know, it's about a young writer to be who decides to emulates Julia Child - there is a parallel between their lives and Meryl Streep and Amy Adams are great !

yes - I read the books too and was very happy to get a "preview" of the film in Montreal, since I don't know when it will be out in France ...

minty, I can so easily picture Meryl as Julia...the voice she will capture I imagine!

I enjoyed the film but I thought Streep went over the top that it made Julia Cartoonish.

Am looking forward to film.
Had seen something about Julia's 'official' team disapproving of Julie's blog and film.
