Based on a true story, the movie Julie & Julia chronicles the blog of New Yorker Julie Powell and intertwines that with the real life of Julia Child. Ms. Powell promised in her blog 'The Julie/Julia Project' to prepare all 524 recipes in Julia Child's book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, in 365 days.
As Ms. Powell's blog grew in popularity, it drew the attention of a book publisher and a deal was signed. Shortly thereafter a movie followed.
Written and directed by Nora Ephron, this was the first major motion picture based on a blog. So all you bloggers out there, start posting! There might be a movie deal in your future too.
