Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Aug 9th at 4PM – meet at 3:45 for Julie and Julia at the Regal Gallery Place . Look for Julia wearing a red hat in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Julie Powell (Amy Adams) is 30-years-old, living in a rundown apartment in Queens and working at a soul-sucking secretarial job that’s going nowhere. She needs something to break the monotony of her life, so she invents a deranged assignment: She will take her mother’s dog-eared copy of the 1961 classic Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child (Meryl Streep) and she will cook all 524 recipes. In the span of one year. Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia intertwines the lives of two women who, though separated by time and space, are both at loose ends…until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible. Also starring Stanley Tucci and Chris Messina. Written and directed by Nora Ephron (Sleepless in Seattle).
Meet at the lamppost at the bottom of the escalator!
