julie-juliaMy friend just posted on her blog about the “Twilight” sequel, “New Moon,” coming to theaters soon and how she can’t wait to see it. I’m sorry to say that movie isn’t on my list of need-to-see’s but “Julie & Julia” is. I saw the trailer for it on TV the other night and can’t wait until it comes to the theaters in August!

Meryl Streep is Julia Child and Amy Adams is Julie Powell in writer-director Nora Ephron’s adaptation of two bestselling memoirs: Powell’s Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia Child with Alex Prud’homme.

Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia intertwines the lives of two women who, though separated by time and space, are both at loose ends…until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible.
