Julie & Julia


This movie is based on 2 (two) bestselling memoirs of Julia Child and Julie Powell. Both lives in 2 (two) different countries and times, 1 (one) in France during 1950s, the other one in USA in 2002, but they share certain things in common, such as: they have dear husbands, unpleasant jobs, love food and cooking. While Julia took cooking class and finally succeeded with her cooking books, on the other hand Julie decided to have her own blog and wrote about her project to try 524 recipes stated in Julia's cooking book within 1 (one) year.

This movie's really inspiring. It brings the message that with the combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible. From this movie, we also could see the power of blog. Julie had her first blog back in 2002, at that time perhaps having a blog was not too popular, therefore her mom and boss kept asking her to close her blog. But, eventually Julie could prove that people loved her food blog. She got many opportunities to transform her blog into books, TV programs and finally a movie.

One thing that make me wondering is Julie wrote her blog in 2002, while Julia was dead in 2004, but they both had never met, in fact Julie was informed that Julia didn't like her blog, how come?

Still, I'll consider this movie as a must see movie and curious about these 2 (two) great memoirs. Get to find them soonest.

@ Icha: aku cuma menyimpulkan dari dialog2 di film & fakta mereka berdua tdk pernah bertemu. Mungkin harus baca bukunya agar lebih jelas ya!
