(2009) Charming, frequently funny dramatization of passages in the lives of master chef Julia Child (a marvelous Meryl Streep) and Internet blogger Julie Powell (Amy Adams), who, 40 years after the publication of Child’s 1961 blockbuster, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, sets out to prepare every recipe in the extensive volume over the course of a year, aided by her supportive husband (Chris Messina) -- whose solicitude parallels that of Child’s own spouse (Stanley Tucci) decades earlier. Writer-director Nora Ephron whips up a delicious mélange of the two women’s memoirs and, more significantly, details the ingredients, ranging from passion to patience, requisite for a successful marriage. Fleeting nongraphic sexual activity, a few sexual references, a suicide reference, at least one use of the F-word, and about a dozen crude or crass terms. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned) Showtime (cable)
