'Julie & Julia' Movie
All the hype about the hit movie Julie & Julia was true. It's a winner! Meryl Streep as Julia Child is as close to perfect as they come. And while there will always be some that have differing opinions, I loved it and have plans to go back and see it again!
It was a long movie - 2 hours, 3 minutes - and I had to get up once during the movie. John says I didn't miss much, but there was so much packed into those 2 hours, that I'm sure I missed something along the way.
