Johnny, Brittany, and I went to see Julie & Julia this week. The premise shows an interweaving of two separate stories about two very different ladies--all the while keeping food at the center. We see Julia Child in France before she learned the art of French cooking all the way to her tremendous success at publishing her cookbook.
Julie, a young married, bored with her life and government job, cooks to relieve stress. She decides to begin a blog while she cooks her way through Julia Child's cookbook. For that reason, this is a must-see for all bloggers. There's so much about "us" in it.
It's refreshing to see a film where both marriages are good ones; both couples enjoy each other and are deeply in love. I found myself smiling throughout the film. Note: there is some unnecessary profanity in it.
I remember watching Julia Child's television programs. Meryl Streep BECOMES Julia Child. What an actress! Although it is a chick flick, husbands will enjoy it--especially the competitiveness in the onion chopping scene. What a fantastic film! It gets a thumbs up from me.
Blogger love coming this way!
On August 10th, I was awarded the Neno's award by Andrea at Arise 2 Write. The Neno's award is given to those who love blogging, love to encourage friendships through blogging, and who help others seek the reasons why we all love blogging.
This is the perfect bloggers award to be given in celebration of blogging (which the movie celebrates). Good timing, I'd say.
I think this probably defines every blogger reading this, so if you have not already been awarded the Neno award, I'd like to offer it to you. Just let me know in the comment that you're taking it. Happy Blogging!
