Julie & Julia
*** begin quote ***
Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and Julie Powell (Amy Adams) are featured in writer-director Nora Ephron’s adaptation of two bestselling memoirs: Powell’s Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia Child with Alex Prud’homme. 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. Written by Columbia Pictures

It was “funny peculiar”; not “funny haha”.
Maybe it resonated so well for the mid-life crisis aspect.
Not a chick flick, it had a poignant tone to it. Sadly funny.
I liked it; Frau didn’t. YMMV
p.s., especially funny; who would ever write a 700 page book? rofl!
