Eat Pray Love takes to the screens...


The eagerly anticipated film adaptation of best-selling book 'Eat Pray Love' kicked off proceedings this week at the films New York Premier. A non-fiction tale of writer Liz Gilbert and her year abroad captured the hearts of millions when it was released in 2006, and looks set to find success once again as screen siren Julia Roberts tackles Liz's complex role on the big screen.


A Quick Plot Outline:

A nasty divorce followed by a nastier affair leads our main character to question who she is. Taking space and time, Liz Gilbert sets off around the world for a year to clear her head and re-discover her true self. Italy becomes destination number one bringing with it a platter of pleasurable pursuits including pizza, pasta, pizza, cheese...oh and did we mention pizza? Heading off to India meditation and spirituality becomes the name of the game as Liz explores a higher power. Finally Bali in Indonesia attracts the unexpected and puts Liz on a completely different path....


Julia Roberts smouldered on the red carpet as Eat Pray Love premièred in New York this week. Wearing a slick Stella McCartney blazer and sultry shorts by Diane Von Furstenberg, Julia made her outfit pop with turquoise jewels. Fans of the book, (ourselves included!) are waiting with baited breath to see if the film can live up to its paper-back predecessor....

I'm not sure if the film could ever be as amazing as the book, but Julia will do a great job I'm sure! I'm excited to see it.
