This movie had us laughing our heads off! Julie (Amy Adams) feels lost in her new city & has a sad job that depresses her so she gets the idea to cook her way thru Julia Child's famous cookbook & then blog about it. (True story!) Meryl Streep as Julia Child was hilarious all the way thru the show.
The best part to me & the part that made me anxious to share this with you all is that the blogging segments & her feelings about blogging were so right on & familiar. It was all I could do not to stand & cheer when she got her first comment!! Her hubby gets a bit jealous & worries about being in the blog, & I know some of you face the same situation at home. :)
My 3 friends & I laughed a lot, then sat in the empty theater talking long after it was over. It was a special day because it was actually planned to get our friend who recently lost her 31 yr old daughter out & about. It has been 2 months since the death & she is very fragile & feeling pretty lost herself. She told us about being in the store, Marshall's the day before & having a meltdown because her mind kept tricking her into thinking that her daughter would love this blouse or those jeans & she was ready to call her daughter about them.
A bit of escape & giggling at a movie screen is about all we can offer but it is a valuable thing, one day at a time.
