Julie & Julia (No spoilers)

Decent movie, although not quite as good as I expected.

I do most of the cooking in the home, so this was an easy film to like. Good characters, although I thought the movie tried a bit too hard at times to humanize Julia Childs by having her do or say "Shocking!" things (meaning things that the public persona of Julia Childs would ever be caught dead saying or doing.

"No man is a hero to his valet de chambre," as Hegel wrote. It's too easy to puncture the public persona by showing scenes from private life.
