Cooking up a storm?

What happens when a secretary decides to cook five hundred twenty four French recipes in a year?

When Julie Powell, a frustrated secretary, sets out to completely run through her copy of Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking in a year’s time, documenting her experiences along the way, she’ll find that sometimes there’s more to cooking than a grocery list and some pots and pans. A great film that will warm the hearts of many food fans.

Director Nora Ephron adapted two bestselling memories: Julie Powell’s Julie & Julia, and My Life in France by Julia Child with Alex Prud’homme. The film will be released on August 7, 2009
