Have You Seen Julie and Julia?

I was dragged (I mean, I went willingly!) to see a movie about Julia Child (based on Julie Powell’s 2002-2003 blog, where Powell recounted her quest of making all 524 recipes in Julia Child’s tome, Mastering the Art of French Cooking).

The movie made me really hungry and distinctly nostalgic, all at the same time.

The diplomatic world of France in the late ’40s is one of two eras captured in this movie (the other being post 9/11, making-ends-meet New York), with all its fashion, social patter, men’s hat styles and big cars. Although I wasn’t even alive then, I somehow feel a pull towards the kind of classy existence portrayed, not all of which can simply be Hollywood manufactured dross.

What decade or era does it for you?

Thanks for reading,
