The night I have been waiting for, for MONTHS. Friday the 13th…Why, you ask? Well, it’s simple. Eat Pray Love came out in theaters!! And of course, Wilson loves me so much, we got to go see it opening night.
See, I read the book a while back, and I fell in love with everything about it. The girl (Liz Gilbert), the story, the travels (ITALY people!!), and the ending love story. I mean c’mon, I’m a total sucker for those kinds of movies!!
But here’s the kicker. It’s a true story!! It’s all about how this woman (Liz), who is played by Julia Roberts in the film (I am madly in love with that woman), realizes that the perfect life she is leading, is so not her perfect life. She gets to travel, yes, but not as much as she wants, and she’s married to a man she fell out of love with, and all in all, it pretty much just sucks. But then, epiphany. She realizes there is a way out. She goes on a journey to find herself, and her word; and so she plans a year long journey, that turns into her memoir, Eat Pray Love. She begins the year in Italy, moves on to India, and ends her journey in Indonesia. Great, great story. Love this woman.
Not only do I recommend the movie, but I recommend the book as well. I love that book, so much so I started it in Spanish, after I read the English version! =)
I’m obsessed, what can I say? Anyways, go out and read the book! Watch the movie! Then come back here and let me know what you think…
P.S. Any new books or movies you recommend?? Let’s hear ’em!
