Julie & Julia
This is the teaser poster for Nora Eprhon's upcoming film Julie & Julia. Now I'm no foodie (I'm looking at you Eat Tori!), but I delighted in Julie Powell's book describing her year long culinary affair with Miss Julia Child. I distinctly remember snorting tea over myself as I read her particularly hilarious account of tackling lobster (granted, not so hilarious if you're the lobster).
I haven't read Miss Child's memoir, My Life In France, but Ephron's film will combine the two books and will make chefs out of Doubting nuns, Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. Ephron's filmography - When Harry Met Sally, Sleepless in Seattle, You've Got Mail, Bewitched - should leave no real surprises about how she'll have tackled this film.
Passion. Ambition. Butter...I'd account for a sack of sugar ("sweet, sweetness") as well.
So do you have what it takes?!
Australian release date: 8 October 2009.
