JULIA tells the story of legendary cookbook author and television superstar Julia Child who changed the way Americans think about food, television, and even about women.
Using never-before-seen archival footage, personal photos, first-person narratives, and mouth-watering food cinematography, the film traces Julia Child’s surprising path – from her struggles to create and publish the revolutionary Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961) which has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date, to her empowering story of a woman who found fame in her 50s, and her calling as an unlikely television sensation.
