The Perfect Formula = Eat+Pray+Love,
This review is from: Eat Pray Love Bilingual (DVD)
The movie is based on a book written by Elizabeth Gilbert and it's actually based on her real-life experience. Julia Roberts plays Liz - she has a wonderful house, a good husband and a career but one night she just falls apart realizing that she's empty and her fire for life has gone out. She divorces her husband, who is heart broken and decides to leave America and travel to her dream destinations to find the meaning of life and heal her soul.
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.
