Julie and Julia

Julie and Julia

My Year of Cooking Dangerously

Julie & Julia, the bestselling memoir that’s “irresistible….A kind of Bridget Jones meets The French Chef” (Philadelphia Inquirer), is now a major motion picture. Julie Powell, nearing thirty and trapped in a dead-end secretarial job, resolves to reclaim her life by cooking in the span of a single year, every one of the 524 recipes in Julia Child’s legendary Mastering the Art of French Cooking.

The film is written and directed by Nora Ephron and stars Amy Adams as Julie and Meryl Streep as Julia.
