This weekend was rather relaxing for me since the past few weekends have been anything but. Friday night I decided to spend it with my mom and sis and we finally caught Julia Robert's new movie Eat, Pray Love.
First off, can I just tell you I want to go to Italy. Not for the beautiful sites and culture, but for the FOOD! If you know me personally, you know I love to throw down when it comes to food!
When you see Roberts' character and her friends chow down on some amazing Italian grub I made the decision that I need to go there ASAP!
Bucket list anyone?
Anyhow, with my love of food aside I'd say this was a really great movie!
I haven't read the book so I really can't offer a comparison all I have to say is that you need to see it. It's such a heartwarming film on life and love.
The movie is about one woman's journey to find herself. Roberts' character, Elizabeth Gilbert (who's the book's author *in case you didn't know), takes a year off from her life in NYC after the failure of her marriage and then, later her relationship with a young actor played by James Franco *LOVE HIM!
This movie shows Liz's road to self-discovery after being newly divorced. She takes a giant leap out of her comfortable life to figure out what she really wants.
So, Liz goes to EAT in Italy, PRAY in India and then just so happens to fall in LOVE in Bali, not only with a man but with HERSELF.
I believe we've all been where Liz has been. Whether we're trying to figure out our career, going through a breakup or divorce or just basically at a crossroads in life. This movie touches on all kinds of topics and is one of those old-fashioned feel-good films that has been missing from theaters for a while.
You all need to go see it!
Now, who's going to come with me to Italy? Be sure to bring your sweatpants!
