Elizabeth Gilbert's memoir of enlightenment gets the deluxe treatment at the hands of Glee creator Ryan Murphy, who bathes every scene in a golden glow. Unaccustomed to being alone, Liz (Julia Roberts) exits her marriage to Stephen (Billy Crudup, quite good) only to enter into an affair with an actor (James Franco, curiously uncomfortable), who introduces her to meditation. Just as her editor, Delia (Doubt's Viola Davis, making the most of a small role), longed to have a baby, Liz has longed to see the world. Delia persuades her to seize the day (plus, money presents no obstacle). First, she travels to Italy, where she noshes from Rome to Naples, making new friends along the way. Then, she heads to an ashram in India, where she meets a bride-to-be and a remorseful man (Richard Jenkins, heartbreaking), who nurture her altruistic side. Her sojourn ends in Bali, where she reunites with Ketut (Hadi Subiyanto, hilarious), the healer who first encouraged her to reassess her situation. While there, she befriends a single mother and a single father (No Country for Old Men's Javier Bardem) who falls for her charms. In an improvement over his version of Running with Scissors, Murphy combines two Oscar winners, two Oscar nominees, and four countries to follow one woman's path to fulfillment. Like Julie and Julia and How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Liz's story becomes more involving as she lets go of the superficial, but Murphy's movie still represents a triumph of escapism over spirituality. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

First stop is Italy - where she enjoys the amazing food, learns the language and meets wonderful peopel with whom she becomes great friends. Next stop is India where she attends a spiritual program - here she learns to meditate and listen to her inner self. And last, she travels to Bali where she falls in love.
The movie is beautifully filmed, all 3 locations are just amazing to watch. The actors are so down to earth that it's a pleasure to watch all of them. I think people will feel a very deep connection to this movie if they're in a similar place in their lives. And I hope that this movie will be an inspiration to just take that leap, to drop everything and travel to your dream destination, life is too short and Liz did what a lot of people wouldn't be able to do. She faced her fears and did what her heart told her to do. The story was emotional and funny and very touching. Liz meets some great characters along the way and every one of them is memorable and different from the other. It was a pleasure to watch and I would watch it again.
A woman in mid-life crisis ends her unfulfilling marriage to her equally immature and directionless husband for no other major reason. The divorce is messy with a lot of guilt to be distributed around. A brief (cougar-)affair ends equally badly so she embarks in a year-long journey to redefine herself.
The journey starts from Italy where apparently she learns to appreciate life's little pleasures and how to enjoy them guilt-free. This part made me hungry for good Italian pasta with fresh tomato sauce and basil but little else. Having said that I have been to Naples and (with all due respect to my Napolitano friends), one can find much better-tasting pizza in Vancouver.
By the way, when someone decides to accept her body no matter its imperfections and goes shopping for larger jeans, she does not then proceed to force the zippers of ...smaller sizes.
India was next and it was a disaster. The guru she has traveled so far to meet is visiting the US and her disciples run her ashram like something between a hostel and a Scientology sweat-shop. She receives no enlightening guidance except some overused bromides from a Texan in his post-alcoholic guilt trip.
I love Indian culture and have a great respect for Indian people. Unlike SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, this movie however will not make you want to visit this mesmerizing country.
Finally, Bali where she meets again a toothless old medicine-man/palm reader.Read more ›
What gets this disc four stars rather than five is that the print is worth only two stars. Sure, it looks pretty good on my HDTV - almost up to DVD standards, but not quite. Always better than standard TV definition, but sometimes not by much. Which is too bad 'cause I bought and received a Blu-ray disc. A truly awful transfer, perhaps they want to sell me a remastered edition as well in a year or two. Don't pay more for the Blu-ray 'cause you won't get more unless the DVD transfer is remarkably trashy.
