Julie & Julia

Tagline:Passion. Ambition. Butter. Do You Have What It Takes?

I just watched the movie and I loved it so much...
It's a movie about Julie Powell, an ordinary married woman hitting 30s. Her job sucks and she feels that she needs that ooomph in her life, thus, she started a quest. Following her passion in cooking, she attempts to cook 524 recipes from a cook book in 365 days. And her inspiration, Julia Child, the author of Mastering the Art of French Cooking. And Julie documented her journey daily in her blog.
I just love the storyline. Somehow, I feel like Julie. Day in day out, she hates sitting in her cubicle and her job, until one day she summons up the courage and took her first step towards something she is passionate about. And voila, it changed her life.

Synopsis from http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1135503/plotsummary:
Julia Child and Julie Powell - both of whom wrote memoirs - find their lives intertwined. Though separated by time and space, both women are at loose ends... until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible.
