I read that book. I didn't exactly agree with the new age aspects of it, nor the sexualy explicit material, but It was a decent read. I though that it ws a well written novel about a traveling woman. I am in a book club at the local library, and we discuss many books of all genres.
I have watched it twice now. The first time I found it somewhat disjointed. It didn't quite gel. Now I know that it was originally a book, I understand more.
I love Julia Roberts. I had seen some "hype" on a talk show from the USA and I thought I might watch it.
No explicitly sexual material in the movie.
She needed to eat to live. She'd stopped enjoying eating/living. She needed to pray but she was lost in her world with no direction and felt the need to search for healing and meaning for her life. She needed to love, but couldn't do anything until she forgave herself for what she felt were her failures. She lived and learned. She was very brave.
I still find it a little disjointed as a movie, but now I know it was a book, maybe I shall read that and compare. Thinking of the title, "Eat, Pray, Love", then I figured it would be a journey and it's actually a journey I enjoyed very much indeed. There were many lessons in the movie.
Gosh, Italy, India and Bali.

i read the book, and LOVED the book. I was really into her journey. I found the movie made her much more a sexual being, and it was skippy, and missed very important parts that made the story cemented. I hate when they do that with books that get made into movies.
its still a great movie, and I have it on my DVR so I can watch it again and again.
I also was upset with how they portrayed wyan, skipped over how she couldnt decide what to do with the money for the house. So, many good parts on the cutting room floor.
