Eat Pray Love

Adapted from the best-selling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, stars Julia Roberts as a newly-divorced woman embarking on a journey of self-discovery. Also stars James Franco and Javier Bardem.

Liz Gilbert (Roberts) had everything a woman is supposed to want - a husband, a house, a successful career - but it just 'aint enough. Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone and embarks on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery. In her travels, she discovers the true pleasures of food in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali.

Variety

Variety

Director Ryan Murphy's superficial take on Elizabeth Gilbert's phenomenally successful memoir is an exotic junk-food buffet that offers few lasting pleasures or surprises, let alone epiphanies.

The film offers an easygoing and generous blend of wish fulfillment, vicarious luxury, wry humor and spiritual uplift, with a star, Julia Roberts, who elicits both envy and empathy.

Shameless wish-fulfillment, a Harlequin novel crossed with a mystic travelogue, and it mercifully reverses the life chronology of many people, which is Love Pray Eat.

Director Ryan Murphy achieved a major casting coup in landing Julia Roberts to play Gilbert - or Liz, as she's called here. As it turns out, though, a lesser star may have been a better choice.

The film never ventures, even once, into a situation that does not reek of comfy familiarity.

A beautiful, languid travelogue, although with some of the source novel's empowerment diluted.
