What Sets CNN's New Julia Child Special Apart From The Rest?
By JOHN TOLLEY
Julia Child is an endlessly captivating figure. She was a celebrity chef, a pioneering television personality, an accomplished author, and a tireless champion of quality ingredients and confident cooking who has inspired a plethora of media adaptions of her story.
Joining a slate of new projects centered on Child is "Julia" from "RBG" directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen and executive producers Ron Howard and Brian Grazer. "Julia" offers viewers a deeper understanding of who Child was by widening the aperture on her life.
Her journey from diplomat's wife to food icon is thoroughly recounted through archival footage and the voices of those who knew her best and were inspired by her work and life. It paints a realistic portrait of a woman who, though beset by insecurities and challenges, persevered, to great success.
