What is Your EAT PRAY LOVE?

EAT PRAY LOVE movie rolled into theaters on Friday, August 13, 2010 and debuted at #2. I did not read the book, but was very curious about the movie because of the cast and producer Brad Pitt.

Julia Roberts plays an amazing leading role as Elizabeth Gilbert a recently divorced author who gives up everything to travel the world for one year on a Spiritual and Personal Journey. She goes to Italy to Eat, India to Pray and finds Love in Bali. EAT PRAY LOVE was directed by Ryan Murphy (who also created Glee) and filmed in chronological order in Italy, India and Indonesia. The movie also features great acting by Billy Crudup, James Franco, Richard Jenkins, Javier Bardem and Viola Davis. Another interesting fact about the movie is that the double mozzarella pizza scene in Naples, Italy is filmed at L’Antica Pizzeria Da Michele, the memorable restaurant Elizabeth Gilbert originally went to. There is a lot of Food and Love throughout every scene.

I absolutely loved this film! The movie was not predictable and the actors made all the characters come to life. I enjoyed watching the food in Italy, the food in India and really wished there was a lot more food in Bali. In fact, I enjoyed the food so much I went on my own Eat Pray Love dinner after the movie at a local authentic Italian restaurant and another Eat Pray Love Brunch the following day – – you will definitely want to discover the pleasure of eating after watching this film.

There is also a wide range of diverse music in the film. The blend of Classic, Contemporary and Brazilian music will make you Happy! Some of my personal favorites were Heart of Gold, Samba da Benção and Got to Give it Up which you can find on the EAT Pray Love movie soundtrack.

This movie will make you take a closer look at yourself, your relationships and reflect on the loves of your life, family and friendships. The film will encourage you to take the time to revive and empower yourself. You may even walk away asking yourself, What is my EAT PRAY LOVE?

I walked away from the movie with a greater appreciation for other countries. I found that even though we have many cultural & religious backgrounds, men and women have many similarities when it comes to matters of the heart. We need to take more time to reflect, revive, renew and restore our souls — not necessarily by traveling the world for a year — but by balancing our busy lives by traveling and taking pleasure in EATing –and LOVing the people around us.
