Eat Pray Love movie review


I had read the book, which I really enjoyed.
Sometimes the movie version of a book is awful,
but not in this case..they did a pretty good job.

The character of Liz goes on a year long adventure
to discover who she truly is and her purpose in life.

First, she goes to Rome, Italy
where she wants to learn Italian
and see sites that take her breath away.

She also learns to enjoy the pleasure of food again!
The real life Liz gained 45 pounds.
As she says,
"I don't want to be obese, but I don't want to feel guilty
every time I eat"

She then goes onto India
where she learns forgiveness,
to pray with an earnest heart,
and a new connection to God.

Her last stop is in Bali
where she learns to love again.

Very good movie:
A little language,
a naked man's butt
but overall, a nice movie.

I have that book on reserve, though it may take a while to get! I think I am 50th in line.

But, should I read forst and then see the movie or see the movie and then read the book? Sometimes it does impact your enjoyment.
