In this day and age, it seems impossible to escape drama. We are all enamored, whether we admit it or not, with the lives of celebrities and movie stars. But drama over a book turned movie?
I’d say that’s a slight bit absurd.
It’s no stretch of the imagination to say that I am a fan of Julie & Julia. What is not to love about it? The message of the book, and subsequently the movie, is strong and independent. Julia Child nor Julie Powell had an easy road to publication. Neither woman had a stress-free, worry-free life. Both women had a desire to improve their lives. And let’s be honest here, what woman does not want to better their life by cooking delicious food? I know I sure do.
Basically, in my view, it comes down to one thing: if you don’t like Julie Powell or anything to do with Julie & Julia, just avoid it. Avoid it like a finicky two-year-old avoids eating their spinach or broccoli. Yes, there has been a huge craze over the movie, but goodness gracious…whatever happened to the old adage of “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all?”
