Movie Review Monday: Eat Pray Love

Eat Pray Love  (2010)

Synopsis: Liz Gilbert (Roberts) had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having - a husband, a house, a successful career - yet like so many others, she found herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wanted in life. Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery. In her travels, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali.(From IMDb

Tanisha's Review: Out of every movie I've seen in my life, this has to be my favorite. I've probably seen this movie more times than I should. Not a lot of people know this movie is based on a true story, and it's very inspirational. Everyone has that little part of them inside that wished they could just pack up and go away for a year, and that's exactly what Elizabeth Gilbert (author of Eat Pray Love) did. Julia Roberts played an awesome role, that quite frankly, seemed to be written for her. The best part of the movie is we got a chance to experience the different cultures of Italy, Bali and India. 
This movie is about finding yourself. Finding that missing piece. She reflected on her life, saw that something was missing, and did something about it. 

Check out the book Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert also. 

I give this movie a 5 out of 5 stars.
