MOVIES: Eat, Pray, Love is easy as 1 2 3

Eating in Italy to find your life's purpose aint a bad idea, especially when you know how to wear it like Julia Roberts.

Two weeks ago I've seen Eat, Pray, Love at Columbia Picture's private cinema in Shangrila Mall. I didn't knew there was!

Here we are the lucky ones.

I am sure you've read more than enough reviews and reasons to watch the film. Simply put, it's an internal battle of man vs. himself. In this case, pretty woman vs. herself. Eat, Pray, Love is a timely film as divorce rates are creeping up and with the fast-paced modern life, people are finding themselves lost.


Julia Roberts as usual, delivered her lines well. Although I think some scenes could have been made shorter, the film is about more than 2 hours long. There are about three points the film wants to convey, which I think people already know. One - the art of doing nothing, two - feeding yourself spiritually, third - betting on love.

The beauty of this film is how it gives the audience reassurance on these thoughts. Maybe in some parts, the film lets the audience reflect and find themselves in any of the characters. It feels good to know that everyone is a mixed bag, Julia Roberts included.

At first glance, Eat, Pray, Love poses as a deep thought provoking movie but personally, I found the movie an easy stride. Like a walk in the park, only I wished the walk was shorter.

Go watch it now, perfect with a box of doughnuts and half a pint of icecream.
