A married woman realizes how unhappy her marriage really is, and that her life needs to go in a different direction. After a painful divorce, she takes off on a round-the-world journey to "find herself".
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.Written by
The opera playing in the background at the pizzeria isn't an Italian opera, but rather Der Hölle Rache Kocht In Meinem Herzen from Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Die Zauberflöte (The Magic Flute)", written in German. See more »
When Liz was in the bathtub reading an Italian dictionary, she mispronounced the word "Macinapepe" (Pepper Grinder/Mill). In the Italian consonants, C before I or E is like the English ch. Later, she mispronounced the word "Lascito" (legacy). Also in Italian, words with sci make a 'sh' sound. See more »
"Eat, Pray, Love" is about a wealthy, over-privileged woman who has a mid-life crises and instead of buying a sports car, she divorces her husband, has some affairs, and spends a boat-load of money.
I guess the moral of the story is that money can buy happiness.
This is the type of movie that makes people want to join the "occupy" movement. The whole point of the movie is that over-indulging is the way to find yourself and be happy.
And just to pour salt in the wound, in the scene where she is eating pasta in Italy is done to the music of Mozart's German opera "The Magic Flute." I guess nobody associated with this piece of trash was smart enough to tell the difference between Italian and German.
Do yourself a favor and skip this garbage.
