Firstly, I have never written a review about a movie BUT having read through the comments that most of you have left about this movie I just had to. Firstly, why did you bother going to see a movie like this if you are going to completely criticise everything about it; the whole point of the story is ONE PERSON'S life and the personal decisions that someone has to make?!?!?!? Do you not think we hear enough about 'war, famine, rape, murder' in our daily life/news. This movie is/and was never going to be about that – surely title gave it away 'EAT PRAY LOVE' NOT <more>
'FAMINE, CLIMATE CHANGE, MURDER' EPL is a movie about the most intimate thoughts and feelings a of a modern woman who is caught up in a life she does not want and how she develops and changes herself/her life for the benefit herself and others around her – and to most of you that's a selfish thing to do?!?!?! REALLY!!!! I thought that EPL was brilliant. Your comments 'she is selfish', 'what planet is she from'... just because Liz was living a life that society 'thinks' we should be living, married to a lovely man, beautiful home does not mean she will be happy doing it does it?! AT LEAST she was a decent and strong person and didn't cheat on her husband which so many do or rely on happy pills or alcohol to get herself through the day which many people do . She took herself away from her life and tried to reconnect with what she wants in life. And I'm also guessing that NONE OF YOU have actually meditated, or spent time in an ashram or been 'silent' for any length of time?! I recommend you do it and then watch the movie again. Regular meditation, being silent for a length of time and all of those other so called 'hippy' things that she does are extremely enlightening and truly magical thing is, not everyone can handle it it's not easy taking a good hard look at yourself. The other interesting thing is that regardless of whether you're happy or unhappy in your current life, the things that Liz incorporates into her life are extremely beneficial and if we all spent time doing those things, life would see much brighter, simpler and happier place. I feel slightly sorry for those that cannot see the simple beauty in this TRUE STORY that was originally meant to be a kind of 'self help' book that things happen for a reason and that people come and go in our life male, female, young and old and that you need to be true to yourself to be truly happy in your own skin.
Despite what the previous male reviewer wrote, we have plenty of films about men having mid-life crises and dating 20 year olds, leaving their wives and families, and cheating on their girlfriends. That is not a logical basis for saying Eat, Pray, Love presents a woman with "personality disorder". From James Bond to "The Vanishing Point" personality disordered men abound in film. How about we leave the pop psychology at home and just review the film? For reasons that we are not privy to in the film, Liz is simply not happy in her marriage. It happens, and it is not a <more>
personality disorder. It happens to men, too. She takes a wonderful journey around the world trying to make peace with herself and rediscover the joy in life. In the end, she learns to trust again, and to risk failure in love. It is a deeply touching film, and I am truly shocked at the way it has been misrepresented in other review.
My wife and I see over 100 movies a year, having been in the business and now retired. WE DO NOT READ ANY REVIEWS BY ANYONE. WE TRY TO TELL OUR FRIENDS THAT A CRITIC IS ONE PERSON, HE OR SHE IS NOT US. Critics are also a dying breed as newspapers disappear.Therefore, our critique is not biased and based on actually seeing the movie in a theatre. Many critics see the movies 5 at a time in a viewing room.Not a real atmosphere to gauge audience reaction. How can you review a movie without the real deal? This movie has been hyped beyond beyond and it lives up to everything and more. It is simply <more>
spectacular and we believe it should get many Academy Award. From Director Ryan to the delicious, gorgeous, professional Julia Roberts, to Javier Bardem and the sensational Richard Jenkins.The scenery across three countries is breathtaking, the true story in great. Eating in Italy reminds us of our many visits to Rome and Napoli This is in our minds the best movie of the year.
Full Spectrum Theatrical Experience (by wilbsnodgrassiii)
Visually stunningSpiritually - deep thus some of the embarrassing statements so far in the reviews....it hits close to home with much of what is wrong with today's society...especially those people who think having the perfect life means having a "whole life".Fantastic music.Yes, it is long, but sorry...I don't fall into the normal world of having everything fit to the world of TV dramas 1hour . This movie is one of my favorites because it is an experience. Theatrically it hits all of me just right...is full and uplifting.
Job Well Done (by beckyadv)
Didn't know what to expect as the reviews were "lukewarm" for the most part but absolutely was VERY pleased after seeing the movie. The casting was superb except for Billy Crudup -- Julia Roberts & the actor who played Richard were outstanding. I enjoyed the book very much--so much that I really did not want to see the movie. As we all know--"the book is usually better than the movie." But Ryan Murphy and all of the other production people did justice to the book and then some. I think most of the harsh critics were predominantly from males and/or people who did <more>
not read the book OR people who do not know the definition of a memoir. Here you go-- a memoir is a record of events based on the writer's personal observation or knowledge. So to call the book and/or movie self-indulgent is rather unfair. The book/movie is not a war novel- -it is a memoir. The best line was about people living in misery and not having the courage to make a change--I see this in more than half the people that I know. I hope that maybe a few people--women or men--can at least take that concept with them after they see the movie!!!!
Eat Pray Love is a movie you have to experience for yourself...a story about a woman on a journey to find herself.After reading the book and loving it, I must say the movie isn't quite as good as the book; close, but not quite. however, it was still a beautiful story and fabulous movie. If you have not read the book, you won't know the difference.Spoiler: Realizing that her wonderful, almost perfect life, was not at all perfect to her, Liz checks out leaving her perfect home and great guy husband. After another relationship and break-up, she goes on a journey, which is closer to her <more>
ideal life... searching for the passion, balance, appreciation, all that is missing from her current life.The scenery is quite beautiful; it's a gorgeous movie particularly with the locations: Italy, India and Bali. The beauty in aged crumbling structures in Rome mirror the emotional turmoil and crumbling that Liz has goes through to transform, to find herself, forgive herself and just be.I understand that a lot of people, especially people that are happy and comfortable with traditional life and family do not understand a woman leaving a perfectly nice man that is in love with his wife to go on a journey and find herself. I also realize that many people say that Liz is selfish and it's all about her. Yes. This movie and the book is all about her. It is a real story about a woman, searching for something missing in her life. It was refreshing that someone was honest about being unhappy and wanting a different life. Taking the difficult path, the unknown journey and risking everything. I don't do martyrs, so I like Liz. My favorite part of the movie and my least favorite part of the book... Bali. I love Javier Bardem. The raw emotion he portrayed was heartbreaking to watch and so personal. Although Julia Roberts was her normal charming self, the men, with their small supporting roles, stole this movie. Take a chance, and go see this movie. I do not understand the comments and ratings that it has received so far. It was quite touching and beautiful.
Most films avoid themes about self awareness, personal growth, and transformation, settling instead for comedy and drama within accepted religious or community guidelines. This subject matter, however, is tackled head on if somewhat superficially in Eat Pray Love, a film by Ryan Murphy based on the best selling book by Elizabeth Gilbert. Written by the director and Jonathan Salt, Eat Pray Love starring Julia Roberts as Liz Gilbert is an entrancing travelogue, a romantic comedy, and a spiritual adventure all wrapped in one engaging package. Liz is looking for personal growth and enhanced <more>
self-awareness as summarized in Werner Erhard's discussion of transformation, "You get to look deep down and find out something profound about yourself", he said. "You come to know yourself, not what you think, not what you feel, but you come to know yourself honestly." Julia is a sure box office draw and almost an American film icon and her performance more than lives up to expectations. Liz Gilbert is a prominent New York journalist. Although married now for eight years, Liz can no longer relate to her husband's Billy Cruddup ambitious lifestyle. When he asks for a trip to Aruba, she asks for a divorce. Though at first unwilling, Stephen finally agrees. Shortly thereafter, Liz begins a relationship with David James Franco , a handsome actor who has a spiritual side and is devoted to a woman guru in India. Eventually Liz is torn by what seems to be her controlling nature or perhaps it is that her personality becomes subsumed by the demands of each relationship. Looking into herself, Liz experiences her own guilt and regret.Like others seeking transformation, she is perhaps somewhat self absorbed but is clearly a woman who longs for a more satisfying life. To this end, she decides to take a year off from her work and travels to distant places such as Italy, India, and Bali in hopes of finding herself. In Italy she meets Sofie Tuva Novatny , a young woman from Sweden who is also looking for fulfillment. Sofie guides her to her Italian tutor Luca Argentero and his friend Luca Spaghetti that's right played by Giuseppe Gandini. Luca tells Liz that Americans work too hard and know nothing about pleasure. Taking his advice seriously, Liz savors the delights of Italian food, devouring some sumptuous-looking spaghetti and even taking a side trip to Naples to discover the wonders of Italian pizza. As she slowly senses her passion for life returning, she decides to end her affair with David via e-mail.In gratitude for the love and support she has received from her new found friends in Italy, Liz prepares a Thanksgiving dinner before leaving for a Hindu ashram in a rural village in India. During the process of scrubbing floors as part of her service to the ashram, she meets and becomes friends with Tulsi Rush**a Singh a young Indian girl who is unhappy about her upcoming arranged marriage. Liz also becomes good friends with Richard Richard Jenkins , an American from Texas, who is suffering from his own personal pain. Richard advises Liz to forgive herself and let go of the past. His counsel is to live in the present moment and, in one of the emotional highlights of the films, tells Liz about his own battle with guilt and remorse.On the last leg of her trip in Bali, Liz discovers that the external God that she has been seeking lies within herself and that she has the power to transform her own life. Her final challenge occurs when she meets a handsome divorced Brazilian Felipe Javier Bardem . Mirroring Anais Nin's conflict in deciding whether the risk "to remain tight in the bud is more painful than the risk it takes to blossom," she struggles with the choice of holding to her new found spiritual and personal reality or giving herself completely in a relationship.By the end of the film, though Liz has a way still to go like all of us , her spiritual journey has made her more self aware and has brought her closer to self acceptance and personal transformation. It turns out that her real voyage of discovery lay in Proust's phrase, "not in seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes." Eat Pray Love is engaging and inspiring for anyone who is seeking a deeper understanding of what makes life work.
Despite the lousy average of stars on IMDb, I liked the movie a lot. Admittedly some characters are only sketched the first and second boyfriend , but the movie poses some serious questions, and I completely disagree with reviewers who say that it has nothing to say. I like Roberts as actress, and she's very good also in this more serious and tormented character. Bardem is also quite good. I may be just in the right age- group for this movie: at 41 some of the questions that it poses just resonate with me, but I think it is also a likable movie in itself, with some funny moments, a <more>
wonderful setting Rome is always beautiful and Bali is a dream , and very nice music. As an Italian, I may find some of the views on my Country a little stereotyped, but not in an offensive or stupid way: just a bit superficial. All in all, I liked it. Only suggestions is to watch it after dinner, otherwise you will suffer...
Delicious, Spiritual, Romantic ....a fine film and gorgeous, too (by inkblot11)
Liz Julia Roberts is at a crossroads in her life. After a trip to Bali, she realizes her marriage to Stephen Billy Crudup is not fulfilling and she asks for a divorce. Matrimony soon turns into acrimony, as a separation is not what Stephen wants at all. Nevertheless, the union ends and Liz falls into the arm of a good-looking, younger actor James Franco for comfort. Her best friend Viola Davis warns her that she, Liz, is playing the same song with a different musician, that is, her relationship is likely to fail. She's right. Therefore, Liz decides to jumpstart her life again by <more>
traveling to three countries. Italy, for its exquisite language and cuisine, India, for its meditational ashrams, and Bali, to come full circle. Once in Italy, Liz meets a bevy of friends, sharing meals and conversations. All too soon, its time to head toward India. There, joviality ends, as Liz travels into a spiritual journey of forgiveness. A Texan Richard Jenkins helps. Finally, Elizabeth arrives in Bali, where she is literally knocked off the road by a handsome tour guide, Felipe Javier Bardem . In spite of cuts on her knee, Liz regards Felipe as one attractive man. Will Liz undergo a romantic transformation, too? This is a beautiful film indeed that is, er, delicious, spiritual and romantic. The very fine cast is to be commended, for the stars and the lesser actors all work together beautifully. Surely, this is Roberts best work in recent years, although that is not a criticism. Jenkins, also, is superlative and so are Davis, Crudup, Franco, and all of the others. One must wait and wait to see Bardem but, when he arrives, its definitely "be still my heart"! Next, the scenery is so wonderful that armchair travelers, like me, are in raptures. Bali, especially, is gorgeous and ticket sales to that destination are likely to go through the proverbial roof. In addition, the script proves that the written work can translate well to the screen, with its powerful beauty, and the direction is interesting and varied, with a pace that slows down as Liz gets closer to her new self. Costumes, too, are quite nice, as Roberts, especially, looks stunning, as do the others. In short, dear movie fan, get to the nearest cinema, buy some popcorn, and change your own life for a couple of hours. This film is worth it.
