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.
Meryl Streep is Julia Child and Amy Adams is Julie Powell 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.
The film bounces back and forth between the 1940's when Julia Child was struggling to write her classic cookbook and 2002 as Julie Powell attempts to follow in her footsteps. Although Amy Adams and Meryl Streep do not share any scenes together, we see how closely the two women's lives mirror each other.
