I loved Julie and Julia and am anxiously waiting for the copy of Bright Star that I've reserved at the library to arrive!


Julie and Julia is delicious, Meryl Streep is a treat. And so is the book, if you mean Julia's memoir My Life in France. You feel swept away by her zest for life. Not so keen, however, on Julie Powell's book about her Julie/Julia blog challenge - it was spoiled for me by the unpleasantness of her own character (and her tiresome bad language). So there! Stick to Julia ... delightful company and a real lady!.


I loved BrightStar, the costumes were just amazing. I did see Julie/Julia. Meryl Streep was just fantastic as Julia Child, absolutely mesmerizing performance.


Saw it. Enjoyed it. It made me want to eat something...or many somethings...delicious and delectable.

I agreed with "m" about Julie and Julia the movie and Julie and Julia the book. They had to whitewash Julie Powell's character quite a bit for the movie. She is a real potty mouth. I read Powell's entire J&J blog as well, and that was worse than the book.

I loved the movie Julie and Julia, and blogged about it on 7 Sep 09. It ticked several boxes for me: Meryl, France, food, blogging and publishing. Mr C may find it rather too girly unless he's interested in cooking.
