Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge #72 - Julie and Julia

What a project Julie Powell took on with her cooking blog... After a weekly Cob Salad lunch date with friends, Julie Powell was tired of feeling like a second class citizen. Julie wanted to find something she was really good and share her story.. She created a blog to document her journey cooking ALL the recipes in Julia Child's cook book. I think she bit off a little more that she could chew to say the least.. This adventure even jeopardized her marriage. She said that Julia gave her life purpose. Amy Adams did a sweet job portraying Julie Powell. It was so delightful to get a glimpse of Julia Child's live. She was so adorable.. I was disappointed in the end of the movie though I felt like the story didn't have a lot of closure. Defiantly worth the watch though.. I watched the movie on Netflicks instant download.

"I was drowning and she pulled me out of the Ocean" the words of Julie Powell about Julia Child and the cooking blog project.

YES I win! Julia proves she is fearless against the men at the Cordon Bleu.

I love to COOK so when I hear about this movie I was excited. We are FOOD NETWORK junkies at our house.. Julia Child is a LEGAND and will be looked up to forever in the culinary world... Meryl Streep did an AMAZING job portraying her.. She nailed the voice for sure.. Just charming... It was fun to see such a warm and loving side of Julia, and what an ADORABLE husband she had...

Oh, Brooke!! I LOVE this movie!!!! I saw it twice in the theatre and once at home (got the DVD for Christmas!!). I was disappointed that Meryl didn't get the Oscar for her performance :( The site isn't up yet, so I'm glad I've seen your card and the creative juices are flowing...lots of inspiration from this movie...one of my favourite lines was Julia saying, "don't apologize!" Love the papers on your card...will have to go back into my SU catalogue and look up that great dp :)

I loved this movie! And I felt the same way about the ending. It is hard to see that Julia did not really like Julie however.

Cute card! Love that eggbeater.
