A Note About the Movie Title
This is the movie adaptation of the travelogue memoir written by the American author Elizabeth Gilbert published in 2006.
Gilbert grafts the structure of romantic fiction upon the inquiries of reporting in this sprawling yet methodical travelogue of soul-searching and self-discovery. Plagued with despair after a nasty divorce, the author, in her early 30s, divides a year equally among three dissimilar countries, exploring her competing urges for earthly delights and divine transcendence.
Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having - a husband, a house, a successful career - yet like so many others, she found herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wanted in life. Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery. In her travels, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali..

Buy the Eat Pray Love (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) - A collection of music from the movie
This compilation features music, by various artists of the 70's and earlier, strikes the cord of life itself...memory, love, thought, desire, and hope..as well as takes one upon a journey...which is the purpose of the movie. If you loved Neil Young, Marvin Gaye, Kool and the Gang, and the best of the 70's with some older and newer music stuck in between, this is for you.
Splendid addition to any collection and perfect for listening to with someone you love...husband, lover, daughter, friend...or,a I did in the movie, first with my best friend, who knows each and every secret of my heart and soul, and then "play it forward" to others...It is my plan when I can get my hands on it!! - Amazon Customer's Review by Anne C. Hodges
