i saw it at Wandsworth and loved it. The Julia childs part was so interesting. and as others were saying, I'd rather see the wholef film about her and her family. Julie Powell was a bit drippy, I usually like Amy Andrews but not so much in this. vx
preferred locations Shepherds Bush, Westfield, Notting Hill, Central London, Wimbledon, Islington, Wandsworth thanks

The film's only 2hrs and 3 mins, so it's like the standard time for most films. Its kind of worrying of most people still say its very long.....hmm....I will be watching it tonight

Loved this, thought Meryl Streep was especially brilliant in this.

i was running a bit late for this last night, thanks to bus not turning up and tights not staying up (don't ask!)....(y'see i like to be there for 6 on the dot or I panic that all the seats will be gone)

anyway after reading it was long and gave you the munchies, i went totally mad and treat myself to some nacho's, yumm. the cinema wasn't too packed maybe 65%-75% and it was a bit cooler than it usually is so maybe that's coloured my view but i surprised myself and really enjoyed this. i thought it was nicely done, and it was great to see a film that was a little but different without being too way out there.

i didn't think meryl streep was a giant though, is she in real life? i did spot one bit when she was lunching with friends and she was sat on a chair that was far higher than the others round the table so maybe there was a bit of camera trickery going on.

have to agree i loved the meryl story better and she was easier to warm to than the other character and her hubby was great, ooooh to have a life of baking and bonking. whether it be down to the hot nacho cheese or the film cheese i dunno, but i came away with a lovely glow inside 8/10
