I told you that last night B and I were going to be doing something special. What I didn't tell you is that B won us tickets for a Detroit News sponsored sneak peek to see Julie & Julia! We were invited to attend a strolled reception prior to the 7:00p.m. screening. We had some yummy hors d'oeuvres and received a Julie & Julia apron, recipe card, bottle of Perrier and Julie & Julia themed shopping bag.
The movie was amazing! Meryl Streep blew me away. She is Julia Child! The movie covered more of Julia Child's life than the book, which I loved! I plan to read a biography on her soon. The movie also changed a bit of the book. Julie Powell in the movie was definitely a character based on Julie Powell the author of the book, not exactly like her. Some aspects of her personality and back story changed. I didn't mind the changes. I found the movie to be delightful!
I have some very exciting news to announce regarding this sneak peek! B has offered his "goodie bag" to one of my readers! Please leave a comment on this post for an entry to win the Julie & Julia loot! I will draw a winner next Wednesday. Spread the word!
