The Simply Luxurious Life®: Eat, Pray, Love  

August 13, 2010

Eat, Pray, Love




Eat Pray Love starring Julia Roberts, begins showing in theaters all across the country today (DVD released November 23rd)  and whether or not you’ve read Elizabeth Gilbert’s New York Times Best Selling book, I have a feeling you will be able to garner a bit, if not more, inspiration from simply watching the movie.  However, I also have a feeling, you may be compelled to read the book, if you haven’t already done so.

I remember  when I first read Eat Pray Love (I’ll be honest – with the help of Oprah’s attention to the novel).  I finished in just a few days because while her experience may not be something I will ever encounter, she brings to light so many feelings and emotions that sometimes I too have wrestled with regarding how one’s life should be lived.

So bring on the food, bring on the love and bring on the self-reflection.  Who all will be enjoying the film this weekend?

I can't wait to see the movie! Julia Roberts looks PERFECT in the role. It's the perfect girls night out pick :)

I have to say, the book-to-movie phase has been quite impressive these past couple years...

Marley and Me, The Secret Life of Bees... it does/has been doing the books justice (not so keen on The Time Traveler's Wife rendition)... but, the success behind the others (Oh! don't forget the 5 people you meet in heaven)! Haven't tried the Dan Brown movies yet...

but (enough raddling) Eat, Pray, Love has made the list...

Although, nothing will beat the charm of my beaten down, read too many times inclusive of red wine spill pages...

I think it is a must. :)

Happy Weekend to you!

Yay! I'm so happy this movie is finally here! Not sure if I will see it at the theater. I'm thinking I might just wait to buy it so I can watch whenever I want. Either way, I can't wait to see it! BTW-thanks Shannon for your sweet comment about sleep. I responded to your comment on DDD. Have a great weekend.

I haven't read it and feel like I must have had my head down a hole to miss it!
Sounds like a wonderful movie.

I love this! I am dying to see the movie! I loved the book! Julia Roberts was perfect to play this part! The love balloons in the shape of a heart are precious!

I still didn't read the book or watched the movie! It is about time... Like the chosen 'pray'-image!
