Watched this during the Christmas holidays. Here's the Wikipedia link for a synopsis of the movie as well as some review and other related info.
Meryl Streep shines as Julia Child, while Amy Adams sparkles as Julie Powell. But what I liked most about the film is Nora Ephron's brilliant screenplay woven out of Child's autobiography and Powell's memoir (based on her blog).
And of course, the scrumptiously photographed culinary dishes.
Finally got to see 24: Redemption, the TV movie that serves as prologue to 24 Season 7, over the holiday break.
I didn't know there was this TV movie that came before the regular season. I only found out about it when C told me the back story involving Jonas Hodges (played by Jon Voight) and his "Blackwater"-type military organization. Apparently, Hodges had played puppet master in a rebellion in the fictitious African country of Sangala. (See summary of the TV movie here.)
I avidly followed 24 from Seasons 1-7, and am looking forward to watching more episodes this Season 8 -- set to premiere on Sunday, January 17.
