Eat Pray Love

Eat Pray Love was something more than a history of women since the beginning – writer Elizabeth Gilbert financed its year-long journey around the world with the progress of an editor, and felt his stay in Italy, India and Indonesia with the knowledge they would in a book, and hopefully a success. The resulting best-selling phenomenon is something that nobody could have predicted, but now that we Eat Pray Love film, is clearer than ever that Liz Gilbert, played by Julia Roberts, is more avatar for all women as a human being real. We see her and her blond highlights and tasteful clothes to travel the world because we can not do the same, and any story that might come along with it not only needs to get in the way of all the wish-fulfillment going on theater.

Ryan Murphy may seem an odd choice to handle this, given that its current success to get Glee steadily replacing lines manic plot twists cute and real character and history. Eat Pray Love But changes in the opposite direction, having in themselves and form stars very seriously to bring the same excitement as the book of Gilbert. Roberts positively shines in the lead role – and she is in almost every frame, so that helps a lot – but the flexible and deliberately uncertain resolution of translating the book to the screen in a strange way, a woman struggling to find his purpose in a film that does not understand, much less her.

For all the things Eat Pray Love does right, who constantly must overcome their cardinal sin of making a quick little book in a bloated monster of a movie. Eat Pray Love is almost two and a half hours long, so much so that 45 minutes before going for Gilbert does any of the three things promised in the title, the story follows his divorce (to an amiable and a little pathetic Billy Crudup), since the book did, God creates a romantic adventure of a child (played by a scruffy, sexy James Franco), and stubbornly stick with the life of Gilbert New York, until we are practically screaming at her to get hell on that plane. In his book, Gilbert settled in a few quick sentences the total devastation of divorce, but Murphy and his co-writer Jennifer Salt spend much more time telling us much less, when Gilbert arrived in Italy that we are bound to feel the thrill of be alone at last, but despite all the exposure we’re still trying to understand this remarkable woman can live the fantasy of leaving everything behind.

There was a strong realism in the center of Gilbert’s book that justified all the self-obsessed chatter, but all of that, predictably, is absent here. The real Gilbert spent his time in Rome, learning to live life on their own and deliberately resist romance, action film constantly Gilbert meals at tables filled with laughter, international sides, and ends his stay with a speech about how lucky she is be part of a community. The segment in an ashram in India is mostly unscathed, thanks to a performance from Richard Jenkins nice to feel like a fellow worshiper, but in the film version of Gilbert visits the ashram at the suggestion of his young boyfriend, David, not due their spiritual devotion, which was originally a symbol of self-reliance in the movie becomes another example of a woman doing something, because a man encourages a.

The final section is the more traditional Bali – a woman travels to an exotic place, meet an exotic looking man (Javier Bardem, delicious), falls in love – and also performed better, perhaps because all the spirituality of India and hedonism of Italy were more difficult to translate to the screen. However, as fun as it is to look Bardem Roberts and roll in the leaves and marvel at exquisite beauty of Bali, Gilbert in real life is once again disappointed. His romance with Brazilian Felipe deliberately left unclear in the book, written by a woman burned by divorce you just learn to live by herself again. Movie Gilbert said that, things heated up but vague about not having to love someone else to show that she loves, but just in time for the closing shot is climbing in a boat with his love and literally riding off into the sunset. It is a huge police, but not surprising given the two hours of platitudes and incredibly simple “hard decisions” that have reached it.

Honestly, all this would be fine if not for the huge time running, which is likely to test the patience of even the most guilty pleasure seekers and devotees. Yes, it’s fun to sit and admire the scenery and food and enduring star power of Julia Roberts, and leave the theater and immediately either book a trip to Bali or the cheapest option, make a straight line to your neighborhood best pizza place. Eat Pray Love is an effective and often successful leniency, but not so much as the book was, and not so much as it could have been a little more attention and confidence in his own ideas.
