Oscar-winning directors Betsy West and Julie Cohen (RBG) turn their storytelling skills towards another under-appreciated trailblazer. As an early adult, Julia Child lived the life of an adventurer, working at a spy agency in Sri Lanka and China, then marrying a career diplomat. A long assignment in France allowed the exuberant Julia to indulge in the men’s-only field of cooking, and then landed her a book deal. The rest is history, one that West and Cohen fill with surprise and delight. With newly unearthed footage and insights into the evolution of American taste, JULIA is delicious. (U.S., 2021, 90m)
