Julie & Julia (2009)

Julie & Julia was directed by Nora Ephron, she also directed – Sleepless in Seattle, You’ve Got Mail, and Michael. However she is best known for her writing and is a triple  Academy Award nominee  for Original Screenplays, Silkwood, When Harry Met Sally and Sleepless in Seattle. For this movie she is the director, writer, and producer so it’s safe to say, this movie incorporates her creative touch.

Julie & Julia (2009)

The movie replays events in the life of  Julia Child, while following Julie Powell’s quest to cook all 524 recipes from Julia’s cookbook in a single year. Julie blogs about her experiences, her blog becomes popular and makes her a published author.

Nora Ephron really shows great talent combining these two stories into one enjoyable movie.  Meryl Streep becomes Julia Child–it’s amazing to watch and easy to understand why she is seen as a great actor. While Amy Adams does a good job playing Julie Powell, it’s Streep’s performance that I will remember.
