I haven't done the movie review for a while since I really didn't get a chance to sit and watch a full movie. It's one of those rare times that I get to see and pay attention to a movie last night.
I shut down the computer, and turned off the phone to watch "The Julie/Julia Project". I learned so many new things about Julia Child from this movie, such as how long it took her to write her cook book, she didn't have children, she married a wonderful man, and how late in her life she learned to cook.
As much as I learned about Julia Child, I also have questions about her family. Why she talked with a French accent while her family didn't, or at least in the movie. Overall, the movie was very enjoyable, and inspiring.
It proved that you could be successful in whatever you do, and no matter how late in life you began. The inspiring part for me was Julie! She started her blog, with a dead line, to accomplish something worthwhile.
Julie Powell began with a simple blog, and had a dead line of a year to cook 524 recipes in 365 days. She went through the anticipating of waiting for a comment when first began the blog, and got devoured in the pressure of posting to keep up.
Through it all, her blog was discovered by famous and big name agents. She finished her project, and the result is history.
Wouldn't it be nice for us bloggers to be recognized? So keep your dream alive! Watch the movie, I'm sure you will enjoy it.
