Eat Pray Love (Quick Review)

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

“Eat Pray Love” invites us to follow a narcissistic, self-absorbed woman pleasure herself for nearly two and a half hours in three different countries. The movie’s first thirty minutes is composed of Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) complaining about the current state of her life; that’s a lot of minutes, considering there isn’t much of her life worth complaining about. So, she breaks up with her husband who loves her, starts an affair with an actor (who loves her), abandons him too, and flies to Italy to eat pasta.

Along the way, she meets lots of people. Funny how almost everyone in the movie is very much likeable, except her. And it is infuriating to watch her abandon and/or exploit some of these people to fulfill her own selfish ambition.  “Eat Pray Love”, a movie about a woman named Liz Gilbert, is based on a novel of the same title. It is autobiographical, written by Liz Gilbert and about Liz Gilbert. LOL.
