You would think that Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) had everything a modern woman dreamed to have. She is married, they built their own home and she has a successful career as a writer. Yet, she is still confused and lost wanting a divorce. And when she did she tries taking a year off to journey to Italy to India and then end the year at Bali.

I guess the reviews about the movie kind of made me expect more about the movie. The first time I watched it... I didn't enjoy it much. But, the second time.. I began liking the movie.

I did enjoy the "Eat" part of the movie, where she goes to Italy to learn about the language and how to speak Italian with your hands. I enjoyed that part. Also the dolce-far-niente. The sweetness of doing nothing. Ahhh.

And when I watched it the second time around I enjoyed her encounters with Ketut in Bali... and the uh love story in Bali itself. :)

Quote I Love:

In the end, I've come to believe in something I call "The Physics of the Quest." A force in nature governed by laws as real as the laws of gravity. The rule of Quest Physics goes something like this: If you're brave enough to leave behind everything familiar and comforting, which can be anything from your house to bitter, old resentments, and set out on a truth-seeking journey, either externally or internally, and if you are truly willing to regard everything that happens to you on that journey as a clue and if you accept everyone you meet along the way as a teacher and if you are prepared, most of all, to face and forgive some very difficult realities about yourself, then the truth will not be withheld from you.
