Eat, Pray, Love Movie Review

The movie Eat, Pray, Love is the adaption of Elizabeth Gilbert’s memoir of the same title.  Julia Roberts portrays Elizabeth ‘Liz’ Gilbert as Gilbert goes from being married to being recently divorced and traveling for a year to three different countries: Italy, India, and Bali.  Like with most movies; Eat, Pray, Love‘s screenwriter and director adapt the memoir to make it more suitable for the big screen.

During the start of the movie, we see how Liz isn’t as invested in her marriage as as her husband.  While Liz and her husband’s marriage is in the stages of divorce, Liz throws herself into a relationship with another man.  After a few weeks and on the day her marriage is finalized, Liz leaves for Italy.

During Liz’s travels, we see how each of the countries represent something different:

Italy is the country where Liz feeds herself-both physically and emotionally.

India is where Liz discovers how important faith is.

Bali is where Liz falls back in love.

All though each of the countries that Liz traveled to taught her something, she learns how important it is to put herself first.  Liz also learns that all though it is good to have a balance; that life can’t always be balanced.

Eat Pray Love is a great film for those of you who need that little romance in your life to get you through a dry spell you may be going through.  For those of you who are in a relationship, this movie will be a great way for you to learn how to put yourself first sometimes.
