Although I can’t quite see myself going overseas specifically to search for my favourite director, I too really love movies. I also love to travel so perhaps any excuse to get on a plane to somewhere beautiful is good enough. I already like the Eat Pray Love (2010) vibe of this film. I’m going to hope that the end product is worthwhile.
Eat Pray Love had to be watched because I wanted to know the story of a person who chooses to drastically change their life because what they have no longer makes them happy.
Said woman (Liz), played by Julia Roberts, decides to embark on a three part journey, travelling from Italy to India then Bali in a period of twelve months. As you can imagine, she meets many interesting people en route.
If you’ve ever been to Italy or dreamt about going, you’ll love the first part of this movie. You’ll like it because it’ll remind you of what makes travelling great and particularly, all the things to adore about Italy. Those curious about what it can mean to be on a ‘spiritual journey’ will get the most out of part two.
Filipe, (Javier Bardem) and pretty much everything that comes out of his mouth is a personal highlight of the final part of this movie. I particularly like his response to Liz when she says ‘I am so sick of people telling me I need a man.‘
Watch it if you’re curious about what he says and the adventure such as the one liz chooses.
