18 – No Reservations (2007)

We watched 2007’s No Reservations and it was not what we expected.

Journey with us through this dramatic romantic-comedy based off a German romantic drama film called Mostly Martha (2001). Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart, and Abigail Breslin star in a story about a stuck-in-her-ways chef, her new niece/daughter, and the Owen Wilson-ish guy who brings them together; also: Zeta-Jones’ sister is super dead & a child deals with the crushing realities of mortality. Clearly some things were lost in translation.

17 – Julie & Julia (2009)

Sophie and Mitch watch 2009’s Julie & Julia, a movie about 2 women who were lost in life and found by food.

We talk about cookbooks, boeuf bourguignon, and the film’s ability to tell two different narratives as a single ‘biopic’. Not to mention how amazing Meryl Streep, Amy Adams, and Stanley Tucci are!
