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. :)
