Attention all foodies: It’s best to get a snack before watching this sumptuous four-course meal on iconic chef Julia Child. Not only do Oscar®-nominated filmmakers Julie Cohen and Betsy West (the duo behind RBG) tantalize the taste buds with sensual shots of mouth-watering culinary delights, they also create an equally indelible portrait of the California-born trailblazer. Through the use of intimate letters, interviews, and insights gleaned from three major books, Julia surveys the milestones of Child’s life, from her conservative upbringing to her long-running PBS cooking show. Cohen and West excel at capturing Child’s major passions: her amour for French cuisine as well as her enduring love for her supportive husband, Paul. As Julia richly illustrates, she was a game-changer in a male-dominated profession, a shrewd businesswoman, and an individual unafraid to evolve on issues and stand up for change. –Randy Myers
