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".
Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
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
It strikes me that the scene where they are trying to squeeze into "bigger" pants is a bit silly - why not just get a larger size of bigger pants? The progress that was gained by the declaration that Liz is not going to be ashamed to eat is lost by the dramatisation of bigger pants being too tight. Also, maybe I am an atypical female, but I've never shopped with my friends like this. It seems like that scene should come before they go shopping. Like, they're getting ready to go out, and squeezing into their pants, which don't fit; Liz says that she's not gonna be ashamed to eat -- she's just going to buy bigger pants; and then they go buy bigger pants that fit better, which they then wear comfortably out to eat...
