Movie Mondays

Eat Pray Love

Book, 2006 by Elizabeth Gilbert

In her early thirties, Elizabeth Gilbert had everything a modern American woman was supposed to want--husband, country home, successful career--but instead of feeling happy and fulfilled, she felt consumed by panic and confusion. This wise and rapturous book is the story of how she left behind all these outward marks of success, and of what she found in their place. Following a divorce and a crushing depression, Gilbert set out to examine three different aspects of her nature, set against the backdrop of three different cultures: pleasure in Italy, devotion in India, and on the Indonesian island of Bali, a balance between worldly enjoyment and divine transcendence.

Movie, 2010 directed by Ryan Murphy

Features: Julia Roberts

Tagline: Let Yourself Go

Eat Pray Love had the highest debut at the box office with Roberts in a lead role since America's Sweethearts in 2001.
