Short version: I liked it. Meryl Streep was outstanding as Julia Child. And, because I love food AND love to cook, I immediately got out my copy of "Mastering the Art of French Cooking" the next day and perused until I found a recipe I could make without going to the store. Chocolate Sponge Cake. Delish! But I digress. The movie made me laugh several times, kept me engrossed in Julia Child's story and made me want to cook, yes. But I was sad when I realized that the Amy Adams plot was subpar. I only minimally cared about what happened to her character through no fault of Amy's at all. Just not a great story line. But I would definitely recommend it sheerly for the delight in watching Meryl Streep say, "Bonjour!" in that throaty, Julia Child accent. Love! Love! Love!
