Doc ‘Julia’ Heading to Digital Feb. 1, DVD Feb. 15 From Sony

The documentary Julia, about cookbook author and television star Julia Child, will be released through digital retailers Feb. 1, and on DVD Feb. 15 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Using never-before-seen archival footage, personal photos, first-person narratives and cutting-edge food cinematography, the documentary traces Child’s 12-year struggle to create and publish the revolutionary Mastering the Art of French Cooking (1961), which has sold more than 2.5 million copies to date, and her rapid ascent to become the country’s most unlikely television star. It’s the empowering story of a woman who found her purpose — and her fame — at 50, and took America along on the whole delicious journey.
