Eat Pray Love~

~Julia Roberts in India~

Did you see Julia Roberts on Oprah Monday?
She's such a great actress and seems to be very down to earth and steady-putting her children and husband ahead of her career.
She was talking about the upcoming release of Eat, Pray, Love.

Elizabeth Gilbert's book was such a pleasure to read and reread.
I am anxiously awaiting the movie, which is due to be released sometime in August.
I think it will be the perfect movie to see with a couple of girlfriends.
I also think it might be one of those DVDs that I will want to have in my collection to watch whenever the mood hits.
I love when Elizabeth was visiting Lucca, Italy and describes the figs...

..."But it's not just the meat that's wonderful in Lucca; it's the chestnuts, the peaches, the tumbling displays of figs, dear God, the figs..."




Will you see it?

  1. Yes, I would like to see the movie. I like Julia Roberts as an Actress. She also communicates herself well as a loving Mother.

  2. Yes- you know I will. I have always admired Julie for her eye rolls.

  3. Oh yes I will definitely see it and I do hope Julia Roberts does Elizabeth Gilbert justice...she is one hell of a woman. Have you read her latest book about commitment...it's also wonderful.

  4. I love Julia Roberts...she is such a talent! (honestly...I couldn't get thru the book, I know I am in the minority here, maybe I'll watch the film on dvd, and it will change my mind!)

  5. I had no idea that the book was made into a movie. I loved that book so yes! I will definitely be seeing it. I thnik you are right...perfect to go with a couple of friends. I also like to see movies like this by myself.

  6. You've just sold me on both the book and the film! I'm going to India myself in October to see if I can set up a 'fair trade' art project with Tibetan refugee women... We'll see what comes of it ;-) Hush hush though - still finishing the designs to show on my blog soon.

    Love the shawl Julia Roberts is wearing too..;

  7. Oh Debra I HATED that book. I threw it across the room and donated it. Sorry.

    However, I AM looking forward to the Sex in the City 2!!!! xoxoxoxo

  8. I think I am the only female on the planet who hasn't read that book! Should I read it before the movie? Julia is from my home town, so we try to see all her movies!

  9. I can't wait to see the movie - I loved the book & I am a fan of Julia. I did miss Oprah on Mon. so I will have to go to Oprah.com, but I did enjoy seeing Elizabeth Gilbert when she was on ages ago; and Richard too! I can't imagine a more fun girlfriends night out at the movies! Wish we could all go together.
    Warmest regards,

  10. Beautiful post Deb! I read the book and can't wait to see the movie.
    The previews look great, perfect summer movie :)


  11. I read the book and loved the writing. It made me realize, again, how incredible many women are that I've met thru the years.

    Women with incredible 'life' problems. Solving them, or surviving them (the murder of a child), without a dime to spare, zero travel options, working a job they hated, and raising children into solid members of society.

    Doing all of the above they of course were cooking, cleaning and somehow holding onto hope and deepening their spirituality.

    Hmm, watch the movie? Probably Netflix because the settings should be beautiful.

    Garden & Be well, XO Tara

  12. Julia Roberts is wonderful - beautiful and smart, and a great actress. I struggled with the book Eat Pray Love (maybe I should try again), but I'm looking forward to the movie.

  13. loved the book I will see the movie for sure! Julia is my all time favorite!

  14. Oh dear, I need to join Pamela on this - I haven't read this book either! In fact I'm so behind a friend has given me The Girl With The Dragon Tatoo for a 'homework' assignment. Big gulp too - I'm not a Julia Roberts fan. Still I guess diversity of opinion is what makes the world such an interesting place dear Debra!
