The Oscar-nominated directors of RBG deliver a touching portrait of the iconic television chef Julia Child. She defied expectations for women of her time by traveling abroad, mastering French cuisine, and then, in her fifties, becoming a celebrity on public television with The French Chef and inventing the genre of cooking shows. We watch how Julia adapted to changes in cultural shifts over food, feminism, and homosexuality and how she fought ageism by staying active until the end of her life.
