Julie & Julia, directed by Nora Ephron and starring Meryl Streep, Amy Adams and Stanley Tucci opens in Australian cinemas October 8, 2009.
'Sassy, quirky and disarmingly honest . . .Powell draws high-calorie comedy from her exploits'
Living in a tiny apartment in New York and trapped in a job she hates, Julie Powell sees life passing her by. Then one night, she notices that the few items she's grabbed from the Korean grocery store are the very ingredients for Potage Parmentier, as described in Julia Child's legendary cookbook, Mastering the Art of French Cooking. And The Project is born.
Julie begins to cook – every one of the 524 recipes in the book, in the space of just one year. Soon The Project is all she can think about. While the richness of the food she slaves over spreads into the rest of her life . . .
'A gem of a book . . . both hilarious and touching'
