Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love was a New York Times bestseller and pleasure read across the nation. The memoir chronicles Gilbert’s adventures in 3 countries. Spanning a year, Gilbert travels in search of mental and emotional clarity, hoping to redefine and redirect her life path.
Like many other popular novels, the story has been transferred to the silver screen with a pretty dingy cast. (And by dingy I mean freakin fabulous.) Directed by Ryan Murphy, Julia Roberts leads the ensemble followed by hunks James Franco and Javier Bardem. The film’s expected release date is August 13, 2010.
