Julie and Julia, Regal Gallery Place, 4PM show, meet at 3:45!

Join us as we watch
Julie and Julia! The "official" description of the movie is as follows: Julie Powell (Amy Adams) is 30-years-old, living in a rundown apartment in Queens and working at a soul-sucking secretarial job that's going nowhere. She needs something to break the monotony of her life, so she invents a deranged assignment: She will take her mother's dog-eared copy of the 1961 classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and she will cook all 524 recipes. In the span of one year. 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. Also starring Stanley Tucci and Chris Messina. Written and directed by Nora Ephron (Sleepless in Seattle). As a foodie, a person who has worked terrible, thankless jobs, and someone who shares a name with both of the main characters, I'm naturally obliged to see this. My biases aside, I do feel compelled to mention what a remarkable woman Julia Child was - aside from a storied past working as, among other things, a spy, she had the significant challenge of coming into the culinary universe as an adult, American woman in France - a place where food was (and still is) very much dominated by the young and male. Moreover, you have to admire a woman who would drop a chicken on the floor during the filming of an episode of her show and not have that part edited out. If the movie does any justice to the real person on whom it is based, it should be quite wonderful. Nando's for post-movie discussion - 819 7th St NW
