From Amazon.co.uk

Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir of enlightenment gets the deluxe treatment at the hands of Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who bathes every scene in a golden glow. Unaccustomed to being alone, Liz (Julia Roberts) exits her marriage to Stephen (Billy Crudup, quite good) only to enter into an affair with an actor (James Franco, curiously uncomfortable), who introduces her to meditation. Just as her editor, Delia (Doubt's Viola Davis, making the most of a small role), longed to have a baby, Liz has longed to see the world. Delia persuades her to seize the day (plus, money presents no obstacle). First, she travels to Italy, where she noshes from Rome to Naples, making new friends along the way. Then, she heads to an ashram in India, where she meets a bride-to-be and a remorseful man (Richard Jenkins, heartbreaking), who nurture her altruistic side. Her sojourn ends in Bali, where she reunites with Ketut (Hadi Subiyanto, hilarious), the healer who first encouraged her to reassess her situation. While there, she befriends a single mother and a single father (No Country for Old Men's Javier Bardem) who falls for her charms. In an improvement over his version of Running with Scissors, Murphy combines two Oscar winners, two Oscar nominees, and four countries to follow one woman's path to fulfillment. Like Julie and Julia and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Liz's story becomes more involving as she lets go of the superficial, but Murphy's movie still represents a triumph of escapism over spirituality. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Product Description

Julia Roberts stars in this drama based on the bestselling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert. 30-something Liz Roberts has arrived at a crossroads in life. With a career, a home and a husband, she is in possession of everything the modern woman dreams of. But after repeatedly failing to get pregnant, Liz starts to question her marriage and her purpose in life, and after a painful divorce she takes off on a year-long solo trip around the world on a quest for self-discovery. Along the way she spends four months discovering the joys of food in Italy and four months on the spiritual path in India before finally and unexpectedly finding true love in Bali.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful film! 27 July 2011
Format:DVD
I wasn't exactly expecting this to be an outstanding film, but thought it might at least be enjoyable in a superficial way. Wrong!
I could not sympathise with Roberts' character and the supposedly heart-wrenching marriage break-up. It just did not seem authentic or believable.
Then she goes off around the world (seeing that she is self-obsessed and doesn't have any obstacles in the way, such as REAL LIFE or bills to pay). Then we see her eating pasta (for ages) and dabbling in meditation. Again, there was no depth or authenticity. It seemed an insult to the cultures she was sharing in. Cliches aplenty!!
In the end I turned it off as I was SO bored and could not take any more drivel. Painful to watch. You've been warned!

3.0 out of 5 stars A film of three parts 6 Feb 2011
Format:DVD
I haven't read the book but know friends who, having been through similar issues, rated it highly. And so a small group of us went to see the film.
I loved the first part explaining the break up and the trip to Italy. It was vibrant, it was fun and it showed Italy off beautifully.
For that section of the film, I enjoyed the friendships, the love of food and wine and the language. One particularly laughable part though
is where Julia tells her friend to stop worrying about putting on weight and to just get a bigger pair of jeans. The film then shows them "struggling" to get into what
must be size 8 or 10 jeans. Neither actress really looked like they had put on weight! A little reality wouldn't have gone amiss here - other actors put weight on for
their roles!
The second part of the film was tranquil,sedate. Certainly it was a slower pace and reflected the time the lead spent in the East. This is the more emotional part
so I understand why it had to be that pace. But I got restless, it seemed so self-indulgent. I guess this is where it helps to have read the book because I guess
that is what she was aiming for.
By the last part of the film, I'd had enough. As a previous reviewer said, the film was too long. I no longer really cared why, how or who. I just wanted to go home.
This is no reflection on Julia Roberts who, as usual, gave a great performance. I think I had too much fun in the first part of the film to actually enjoy the rest.

1.0 out of 5 stars oh dear 23 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
having read and quite enjoyed the book, I was really disappointed by how badly this film turned out. Decent cast but not given much to do except look alluring - Julia Roberts remains deeply unsympathetic throughout despite her 'journey' to herself (maybe a common problem when the narrator of the book ends up as the main character). Cheesily bad script that's full of cliches (everyone's happy in Italy because they understand pleasure and Americans are miserable because they are full of guilt). And overlong - you know the film is going to be in 3 parts so the lack of pace means it just becomes tedious. Yawn...solipsistic nonsense that is sadly geared towards a forgiving (and undernourished) female audience.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor 13 July 2011
By Grahame
Format:DVD
Eat Pray Love is a 2010 film based on the memiors of Elizabeth Gilbert; having read and struggled to get into the book that was a smash hit in America, I had hoped the film with its all star cast would be better.

However, although there's nothing inherently wrong with the film, and it is visually stunning, I just found it lack lustre, even boring.

The plot sees a newly divorced New Yorker set off around the world looking for true happiness. Does she find it? Well you will need to see the film, but as the title suggests it involves a lot of eating, praying and a bit of loving with Javier Bardem. Not a film for me, poor.

1.0 out of 5 stars Fakey-Deep American Twaddle 16 Sep 2011
Format:DVD
Armed with the American dream of 'finding herself', Lizzie sets out on a journey outside the safety of American borders. In Rome, she gets a short-term rent in what Americans think an Italian flat must look like - a 5th floor walk up with no hot water. She eats lotsa pasta, and meets the first of her 'best friends.' There is one in each of the three places she visits. These people, if they are not actually American, at least speak American with ease, using timely modern idioms. Moreover, all of these friends suddenly find time in their obviously not-so-busy lives to show her around town all day, every day, giving her 'clues' to her 'inner balance.' Of course, there is also a string of buff young men who suddenly cancel all their appointments in order to devote full attention to pursuing her. Solving the world's problems isn't difficult, either, as Lizzie meets a Balinese medicine woman, who apart from treating her leg wound, spills her heart and gives grave advice. Wishing to help the single-mum med lady, Lizzie is able to garner $18k in American money (which the Americans obviously think is welcome everywhere), by sending one multi-address email to her friends in the US. In short, this movie is fakey-deep American twaddle, further perpetuating the American ideas of what the rest of the world looks like and means to Americans. Utterly dreadful.

3.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable watch 28 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I had recently read the book and so thought it might be good to watch the film afterwards too, despite friends telling me that the film was rubbish!
After reading some not-so-good reviews about the film version too, I decided to go ahead with the purchase anyway, and see for myself. As many people say about many films, 'the film isn't as good as the book', which I would totally agree with, as the film seems to miss huge chunks out.
However, having said all this, I did enjoy the film, but would definitely recommend reading the book first. If I had watched the film first, I would've said that it doesn't have much substance and the story could've probably been told in much less time. As it was, I suppose I filled in the blanks myself.
Verdict - read the book then watch the film.
