Eat Pray Love

Capsule review #4. Like probably every other book club in the country, mine had read Eat Pray Love a while ago, and really enjoyed the book. So of course I was anxiously awaiting the release of the movie.

I was actually a bit disappointed. Julia Roberts plays Elizabeth Gilbert with a lack of emotion and depth. The other big star, Javier Bardem, was a shallow depiction of a real person. I think the real problem with this movie was that there is too much in the book to fit into a two hour movie.

The part of the movie that took place in Italy had the most depth and interest for me; the rest seemed flat, slow moving and dull.
