Julie & Julia trailer online
The trailer for Julie & Julia has arrived online, and it's looking like a lot of fun as well as managing to convey an air of seriousness and also of some biographical nature of Julia Child's life.
The film comes from Nora Ephron who directed and adapted from the book Julie and Julia by Julie Powell (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) and also the book My Life in France by Julia Child and Alex Prud'homme (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com). Yes, this based on two real stories.
The story follows Julie Powell as she attempts to make something of her life and career by cooking her way through all the recipes in Julia Child's famous book, My Life in France, in the space of the year, along the way blogging her experiences in the hope of writing a book.
While the story follows this modern day timeline, it flashes back to Julia Child's time in France, following her exploits in her book as a comparison to Julie's modern life.
It looks like an interesting film and a very clever concept, and the trailer makes me want to see it even more. Who would have guessed that a film about cookbooks and Julia Child would have me so interested? What about you?
