Julie and Julia (2009)

A review from Heidi Saxton, who says:
It isn’t often that you get such a moving, honest portrayal of not one but two marriages, both of them happy in their own way. It’s refreshing to see a couple face the dragons together instead of turning them on one another. And I found it interesting that each of these women — though presumably they never met one another — became a kind of nurturing mentor through their literary “children,” and through giving of themselves to friends and family through the simple tools of domesticity: the saucepan, the roaster, and a really good bottle of wine.

The critics seem thoroughly delighted with this film and particularly with Meryl Streep's interpretation of Julia Child. The love, respect and mutual encouragement between the spouses was also pointed out as a refreshing change.
