words kill, words give life

Julie & Julia

Posted in movies and television by Kaitlin on August 17, 2009

I saw this movie yesterday with my mom. We chose Julie & Julia for the arbitrary reason that it was just starting. Wondering past the knees of already seated moviegoers we found a pair of spots and settled in. This film follows the  true stories of two women who turn to cooking to feel voids in their lives. If you hadn’t guessed, this is a feel good movie. Generally, I hate those, but this is an exception.

I felt connected to their stories. Who wouldn’t emphasize with a woman who feels all her peers have seen undeserved success while she was passed by and who wonders what her purpose is? We’ve all been there. And Julie & Julia shows us that finding the things we love doing can be the most successful thing of all. Also, be forewarned – this movie will make you desperately want to cook.
