Julie and Julia captured our culinary imaginations in this classic 2009 Paris movie. If you love French food and Paris you'll love this movie.
This Paris movie weaves a narrative about Julia Child drawn from two books• Julia Child's autobiography about her time in Paris, My Life in France.
Remember the scene where Julia takes her cooking students shopping? The location was the charming Paris islands Île St-Louis and Île de la Cité.
One of the biggest Paris scenes took days to plan and shoot on the narrow, winding market street of Rue Mouffetard. For centuries there has been an outdoor market Rue Mouffetard in the Latin Quarter, one of the oldest streets in Paris.
It was Nora Ephron, the director, who had the idea to combine the two stories, casting Amy Adams as Julie Powell and Meryl Streep as Julia Child.
The other perfect casting is Stanley Tucci, who gives a razor-sharp portrayal of Julia's husband Paul Child. The movie really comes alive whenever Mery Streep and Stanley Tucci are on the screen.
