Julie & Julia Trailer!

The trailer for Julie and Julia is finally out and you MUST stop everything you are doing right now to see Meryl Streep deliver the classic line, “This is Julia Child!’

As the trailer states, the movie is “Based on Two True Stories” and both are books. Julie and Julia by Julie Powell documents her year of cooking her way through Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Julie’s story is intertwined with Julia Child’s own early years, based on her memoir, My Life in France.

The movie tie-in of Julie and Julia will be published in July, in both trade and mass market paperback:
