Overview

A woman who once made it her goal in life to marry and rear a family finds her priorities suddenly shifting in Ryan Murphy and Jennifer Salt's adaptation of author Elizabeth Gilbert's best-selling memoir. In the eyes of many, Liz Gilbert Julia Roberts was a woman who had it all -- a loving husband, a great career, and a weekend home -- but sometimes one realizes too little too late that they haven't gotten what they truly wanted from life. On the heels of a painful divorce, the woman who had previously looked forward to a contented life of domestic bliss sets out to seek her true destiny by traveling first to Italy, where she learns to appreciate nourishment; then to India, where she discovers the power of prayer; and finally to Bali, where she unexpectedly finds the meaning of true love.

All Movie Guide
Based on the New York Times best-selling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love is the story of a New York writer named Liz Julia Roberts, who ends her marriage and, saddled with regret, does what any rational person would do -- runs away for a journey around world. Though female self-discovery is the central focus of the film, director Ryan Murphy Glee glosses over the plot in favor of picturesque exotic destinations photographed at sunset, food displayed with mouth-watering intensity, and supporting characters bursting with vitality. Of course, there's nothing wrong with that imagery, but those familiar with the book might find Murphy's interpretation confusing and perhaps a little too self-indulgent. The story centers on Liz, who wakes up in the middle of the night and decides that she's unhappy in her marriage, and asks her flighty husband, Stephen Billy Crudup, for a divorce. Soon Liz meets David James Franco, a "Yogi from Yonkers" and the actor who played the lead in a play that she wrote; he's quite a few years younger than her and teaches her the ways of his spiritual guru. Despite this new love affair, Liz still feels unsatisfied with her life, and just as her relationship with David starts to fall apart, she decides that she's going to check out for a year, travel, and find God -- and maybe even herself -- along the way. Her quest takes her first to Italy, where she learns how to embrace life through food; next she travels to India, where she spends time at an ashram and meets Richard Richard Jenkins from Texas, who teaches her to forgive herself; and lastly she goes to Bali to study with a quirky, toothless medicine man and meets Brazilian charmer Felipe Javier Bardem, who brings the possibility of love into her life again. Eat Pray Love allows Roberts' longtime fans to travel the world and back again with her. Her performance isn't a showy one, but one with subtle reactions to dramatic twists and genuine wonder at what her character discovers during her journey. She flashes that infamous smile even through tears -- she cries in every other scene -- at the right moments effectively chosen by Murphy, but despite her performance, it's difficult for the audience to connect to her character. Murphy, along with screenwriter Jennifer Salt, has a hard time translating Liz's feelings of guilt -- she shouldn't have quit her marriage, or eaten so much pizza, or slept with that younger man -- to the screen. Still, the film taps into the escapist romantic aspects of the journey that make it oh so charming, and in between appropriate bouts of music announcing every port of call, the film proves to truly be a guilty pleasure. Roberts' relaxed gracefulness, coupled with a faultless supporting cast, makes this exotic travelogue delightful to watch and difficult to resist.

    I just loved this movie..

    I think this movie is so real in terms of feelings, falling in love and getting married. Every woman can relate to it!

    THIS was what all the hype was about???

    If it weren't for Javier Bardem, this movie would be a total loss. A woman, defined by her relationships with men her whole life, sets out on a journey to find herself. And guess what she finds -- you got it. A man. The lesson here is that if you look like Julia Roberts you can always find "yourself". Nice visuals, though.

    Do not recommend this movie

    I did not like this movie. I felt like I wanted to slap the main character all the way through. The book might be good, but the movie just left me feeling irritated.

    Greatest Movie of the Summer

    When I saw this movie for the first time, it literally changed my life. I felt so calm and peaceful after that I went out and bought the book to see if the effects were the same. This true story of a woman's travels and life altering decisions is an amazing way to find the problems in your life and fix them. This is definitely a great addition to any movie collection.

    This is a favorite of mine. I did read the book first, so it mad

    This is a favorite of mine. I did read the book first, so it made this sweeter. If you people didn't like this film and dissed it, you missed the whole meaning. Not for everybody. It's for "the enlightened," who are trying to improve themselves, for themselves, and the world. They even have a tour similar to this!! You even meet Katut!! lol I'd love to go. Life changer!! Peace

    I absolutely love this movie! It was definitely inspiring and I don't believe it was all about finding a man. I surely learned a lot. And would recommend it to my friends and family.

    love it.

    Love love love this movie. Who wouldn't want to take an adventure like this one? I just finished a book where the lead character also goes on a self-discovery tour. The Australian Pen Pal by Michelle Linn-Gust is a wonderful exploration of what we'll stand when dealing with loss and rediscovery. If you love Eat,Pray,Love as much as I do, I think you'll enjoy the Australian Pen Pal, too.

    My new favorite

    I read some of the other reviews of the movie and maybe those folks have the perfect life, spouse and career. I on the other hand don't and felt inspired by the movie. I was in a similar situation and found the movie inspirational, encouraging and hopeful. I think it truly one of those love it or hate it situations, I love it. So much so, I got tired of trying to catch it on cable, now I have a copy of my own to watch when I chose and be confident in my decision.

    Forget it

    2 hours and 20 minutes of boredom. I didn't see any point to this film. The main character is very selfish, but her situation was intentionally caused by her own actions.

    Don't Bother Watching This - Two Thumbs Down...

    I watched this movie without reading the book (still haven't and I don't want to after seeing this movie). I agree with the other reviewers in that the character is defined by men in her life. First she leaves her husband on the advice of a palm-reading spiritual advisor overseas (strange in itself); then she falls in love at the end to complete the movie?? The only good part of this movie was the part where she did help her friend & friend's daughter realize their dream of owning their own home.

    Long, Boring and Unrealistic

    So I feel unfulfilled, and I decide that spending a year eating pasta in Italy, meditating in India, and doing more meditating in Bali will change me? Really? She didn't even have any lifelong desire to go to India prior to the decision. It just doesn't make sense that this would at all help a person find herself. I must be missing something. Maybe the book is better, but the movie is a yawn. A long one.

    More New Age Enlightenment

    I've got an idea - there might be something in life I'm missing. I think I could be happier - more fullfilled - after all - life is all about me. I think I'll abandon hubby, kids, and the routine - spend a bunch of money traveling, experiencing food, eastern spiritualism, and finally find true love in of all places, polynesian paradise.What a surprise, and pure drival.

    Is there not one left in the literary or cimematic arts that believe that hapoinees can be found within a family, working together, can find lasting happoiness and fulfillment for longer than a few years at a time? It appears no is the answer. The constant attack on married family values grows tedious - though when one looks at hollywood, New York and Vanvouver, totally understandable.

    One last point in my diatribe about why this movie is a waste of time. My husband, or any man could not be the lead character in this, for he would be looked upon as self centered hedonist. The character must be female to even be partially accepted by the majority of audience members or readers. The struggle for my rights as a female continues.-oh goody.

    The fact that the story is based on the author's real experiences, should not come as real surpise, I guess. I do find that fact depressing however.

    Poor little privileged self involved Baby

    Poor privileged baby. The only thing that came across was how to "New Age" your money away. Save yours and don't buy this DVD. If you must see it, see it for free, while doing the laundry or anything productive so you don't feel like you've wasted your time.
