Eat Pray Love Review

Yawn! This is exactly the kind of movie you’d love to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon cuddled in bed with your loved one.

Based on the bestseller novel, Eat Pray Love is the story of a modern New Yorker, Elizabeth Gilbert (Julia Roberts), who suffering from a midlife crisis, suddenly abandons her carefully crafted life to rediscover and reconnect with her true inner self. Having achieved the superficial, materialistic American dream – the perfect house, job and husband, the lacuna in her heart drives Gilbert to a tormented state wherein she no longer ‘feels’ anything. A harrowed divorce and a meaningless fling later she, like a good number of New Yorker’s in their late thirties, sets off on a quest to relearn the balance of life with – the taste of food, tranquility of spiritualism and shades of love.

Gilbert’s self obsession to reignite her passion for life is apparent in her choice for a year long sabbatical in countries beginning with “I” – namely Italy, India and Indonesia. As the film progresses, the audiences are forewarned to hold onto their stomachs as they watch Gilbert indulge in ravenous gluttony – spoonfuls of spaghetti, pizzas and pastas in Italy. At her ashram in India, she meets an argumentative Texan who helps her confront her inner demons and seek peace of mind. Her final destination is the paradise, Bali, where she reunites with a toothless ‘Yoda’-like prudent man, who through his ancient scriptures guides her to achieve a spiritual balance and rediscover true love.

Ryan Murphy’s directorial dexterity and the portrayal of the book through the film could have been convincingly filmed as the projection of the film towards the audience has scored an average.

Julia Robert’s portrayal as Liz was finely filmed. Her acting prowess emerges once again, as she masters her character, though audiences are left lost and wanting with the loose script that drags on. Other co-actors have performed well enough to protect the film from hanging in the air.

A one time watch but not great enough for one to sit back and think on the subject. There could have been improvements in the flow of the film as it puts the audience in a comatose state.

    Oddly enough, prior to reading your review, I was not interested at all in watching the movie. Now that I have read it, I have the urge to rent it and see it for myself.
