Romantic drama.

2010. 133 min.

With Julia Roberts, James Franco, Billy Crudup and Javier Bardem.

Director: Ryan Murphy.


Rating: 2/5

Julia Roberts stars as a divorced writer who goes on a journey of self-discovery by travelling to three different countries.

The movie, and the book it’s based on, makes you wonder if it’s perhaps time you too hit the road (or the airport) to go off and find yourself while eating pizza upon pizza.

But it’s not long before you come down to earth with a bump – you can’t afford it, you can’t just take months of leave and what about your career when you get back?

So it’s best to view Eat Pray Love as a total fantasy – it’s pretty to look at but is so far removed from your daily existence (as are many Hollywood movies) it doesn’t have any bearing on real life.

But it’s perfect for rich housewives who need a break from their husbands.

Bonus: director’s cut, featurettes.
