Eat Pray Love: DVD Review

Eat Pray Love: DVD Review

Eat Pray Love
Rating: M
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.

Julia 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.

Rating: 4/10
