Having read a review of this film on another blog I had added it to My Wishlist. So when I was walking past our hire shop Video Planet in Marta a few days ago and seeing it on the new arrivals advertising board, how could I not go in and see if it was actually available.
Thankyou so much for the review Susie Vereker and for drawing my attention to this brilliant funny film, which is based on the true stories of the two protagonists. I was in just the mood where I needed cheering up and this film certainly had the required result. Just click on her name to visit Susie's Blog and enjoy her review.
There were so many aspects of this film that I enjoyed that although I do not normally write about films on my Blog for this one I have made an exception.
Meryl Streep, a favourite actress of mine played post war housewife, Julia Child who whilst living with her embassy working husband in Paris studies Cordon Bleu Cookery and goes on to write a book 'Mastering the Art of French Cookery' for the American market.
Julie Powell is the 21st century blogger who challenges herself to cook recipes from 'Mastering the Art of French Cookery' over the period of one year and write about her experiences in a Blog at the same time.

I thought my blog readers would be interested in Julie and Julia (2009) as the film covers both blogging and cooking both subjects that many of you are keen on!
