JULIA traveled to the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City for a huge donor gala. It was in honor of Julia Child and her amazing television show, The French Chef. There were fabulous clothes, exquisite meals, along with some loving and quite mean gossip.

It turns out every ensemble member has a special moment to shine during this trip. We learn more about each character and yet, the story is still pushed forward with amazing insights concerning the “Feminine Mystique” and the gender battle. 

JULIA’S words resonated with everyone when she said, “Our show is about cooking, but it is also a travel program. Television is like a window that opens up to the most remarkable places, and the food is the passport. I don’t cook for chefs. I cook for ordinary women, and if you take the time to make a great meal, then you can feel a sense of accomplishment…of mastering, just like JULIA does.” Well-spoken and so true. She was a formidable force to be reckoned with because most people liked her “just the way she was.”

JULIA gives the viewers a sense of truly knowing who she was, not only as a woman and a chef, but as a genuine person who blazed the trail for those who followed. It is available to stream on HBO/MAX.
