Eat Pray Love
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Eat Pray Love (previously "The Virtues of Life") is a 2010 drama film starring Julia Roberts as Elizabeth Gilbert, based on Gilbert's memoir Eat, Pray, Love. The film was co-written and directed by Ryan Murphy. It opened in the U.S. on August 13, 2010.
Elizabeth Gilbert (Julia Roberts) had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having - a husband (Billy Crudup), 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.
