“ For those of us who grew up watching the real Julia Child on NET/PBS it is deliciously frightening to behold Meryl Streep bring her to life on the big screen. I keep watching to catch Meryl slip up and out of character, but she doesn't. She IS Julia Child! And Amy Adams is light as a souffle as Julie Powell and she grows on you so much you just want to give her a hug when she suffers the occasional meltdown. Get this on DVD! ” - TheFabulousThomasJ
