Yesterday, (Friday) the movie adaption of Eat, Pray, Love, a memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, took Julia Roberts on an incredible journey of self-discovery.
Gilbert’s illustration of scenic Italy and Bali is what I hope to see displayed as beautiful landscapes in the film. Gilbert’s dedication to modern India is intricately descriptive and I’m anxious to see if these small details (architecture, food, etc) will shine through on the screen. And of course, I’m dying to see Javier Bardem in his role as the Italian love interest. Will it be as hot and steamy as it is in the book?
What are your thoughts about adapting books into movies? Does the movie ever live up to the book?
