WHAT IS YOUR PASSION? WHAT GETS YOU THROUGH?
What unites the two stories is passion. Julie Powell and Julia Child both discovered a passion – in each case, a passion for food – that got them through tough or uncertain times. “When you talk about passion, Julia Child didn’t just have it for her husband or cooking, she had a passion for living. Real, true joie de vivre. She loved being alive, and that’s inspirational in and of itself.” -- Meryl Streep
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.
