Set in: Italy, India and Indonesia
Summary: At a crossroads in her life, Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) travels to Italy, India and Bali to discover meaning and happiness in this inspiring true story, based on the best-selling book.
I read the book prior to watching the movie. I liked the book a lot, but I did love the movie. I am a visual person and seeing Italy, India AND Indonesia is way better than reading about them. I just can’t wait until I physically get to experience all three.
One of the things that made this movie fantastic is that it is a true story, Elizabeth Gilbert said it F it and took off to find herself in three countries that challenged her in different ways. I have some serious respect for anyone that does that.
Doing just that is a huge dream for me and believe me someday I will do just that but not this year, this year for some stupid reason I decided to get “checked” out health wise… so dumb but hey at least I will be able to finally see when I go to Italy.
What I loved about this movie (and the book essentially) is that each destination brought new challenges and perseverance. Plus before I watched this movie Indian terrified me and I never had any desire to go to India. Now I will go and can’t wait to go.
This is another movie with bad reviews but it is still a great movie to inspire wanderlust, or watch from home when you are totally depressed you can’t go anywhere.
