And the modern political bits were really unnecessary. Even if I agreed with them, they did nothing for the story except offend quite a number of people. Otherwise I really enjoyed it. Streep as Child was just spot on perfect, and the chemistry between her and Stanley Tucci was amazing. And David and I got very hungry after watching all those people eating that amazing food!
I think I remember reading somewhere that the real Julie and her husband did split for a while after the book came out and she became well-know, think it was the usual story, neither of them could handle the attention and did some silly things etc. However I can't remember that bit in the film, but yes, it's not a movie to watch with an empty stomach!
