Eat Pray Love: DVD Review
Eat Pray Love
Released by Sony Home Entertainment
From the incredibly popular book by Elizabeth Gilbert
and from the director who brought us Nip/Tuck and Glee, Ryan Murphy, comes this
cinematic version of Eat, Pray, Love.
Roberts stars as magazine writer Liz Gilbert, who's quite frankly restless in
her married life and decides to split from hubby and head around the world for a
year to find herself again.
Stopping off in Italy, India and
Bali, Gilbert seeks nourishment of the physical and spiritual kind - as well as
emotional healing too.
Julia Roberts is good as Liz but she can't carry the film which towards the
end begins to sag and feel quite long and drawn out.
But for a film which should be about soul, there's sadly too much of
this lacking and not enough passion on display.
It's a shame because Roberts does the gamut of emotions well - but
the film takes too long to get to its resolution - and particularly more so in
an extended cut found on this release.
Extras: Directors Cut and Theatrical version.
