Julie & Julia (2006)

Meryl Streep stole the show in this comedy-drama, which Ephron also directed. It was, in essence, an adaptation, combining Julia Child's autobiography "My Life in France" with New York writer Julie Powell's "Julie and Julia," in which Powell recounts her attempts to prepare all the recipes in Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking." Streep won praise from fans and critics -- and an Oscar nomination -- for her role as Julia Child.
