“The nonfiction film its subject deserves (no offense, Meryl Streep), a buoyant evocation of the life of Julia Child that's infused with uncommon intelligence and enhanced by voluptuous images of food.” Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal.
Julia tells the story of the legendary cookbook author and television superstar who changed the way Americans think about food, television, and even about women. Using never-before-seen archival footage, personal photos, first-person narratives, and cutting-edge, mouth-watering food cinematography, the film traces Julia Child's surprising path, from her struggles to create and publish the revolutionary Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961), which has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date, to her empowering story of a woman who found fame in her fifties and her calling as an unlikely television sensation.
