What’s it about?

This cheerful film tells the true story of a woman who, after her marriage collapses, decides to explore Italy and India on her own in search of spiritual balance.

Who will enjoy it?

If sentimental melodramas and beautiful people float your boat this lovely romantic drama will hit the spot.

Women especially may feel this Julia Robertsromance deserves four stars, but the tone is just too soppy and manipulative.

It feels like a two-hour trip through exotic locations as you watch a series of hunks complicate Ms Roberts’ life.

Ideal syrupy entertainment.

Wait for DVD?

Why wait for the DVD when you can go on holiday now with beautiful Julia and enjoy the sights and sounds of Italy and India in her charming company?

It shows that dreams can come true – if your heart is in the right place and your motives pure you can find romance and spiritual fulfillment, all in one day! But you must learn to appreciate love.

The tempo is easy, the performances good and the tone fiery and sexy.

Good, relaxing entertainment for women.
