Overview

From award-winning filmmakers Julie Cohen & Betsy West (RBG) comes a delectable tribute to the culinary legend who forever changed American cuisine — and popular culture. From her California childhood to her wartime development of shark repellents for the U.S. Navy, Julia uncovers the rich, often ignored backstory behind the larger-than-life myth of Julia Child. Using never-before-seen archival footage and irresistible food cinematography, this effervescent documentary confection charts Child's storied life pre-fame, her ascent to unlikely stardom in her 50s, and her current status as a singular gastronomic icon.

"A delightful documentary ... Julia Child finally gets the celebration she deserves"
— The Wall Street Journal

Why You Should See This Film

With as hearty a zest for life as its titular namesake, Julia is a veritable feast for all food-obsessed film fans. Between the agonising labour of love that was publishing Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961) and her 10-year television reign as The French Chef, this thoughtful film documents the immense struggles simmering behind the familiar iconography. A woman of unparalleled determination and unbridled joy, Julia Child is here celebrated in the same no-nonsense, delightfully warming spirit that she was always known for on the small screen.
