I read and loved the book, or more accurately, I bought the audio book and Elizabeth Gilbert read her book to me. From my vantage point on the other side of midlife, I can say that Elizabeth has the same problem a lot of people have, they are in an unhappy relationship and think the problem is the other person. Of course, it never is entirely the other person but usually one doesn't discover this until after the second bad marriage.

Elizabeth chucked everything and went on a journey to herself. If you pay attention to the subtleties of the movie, she begins her enlightenment when it stops being about her and starts being about other people. Richard, who lived up the highway from here until his death recently was certainly a real person and was portrayed in the movie very much like in the book.

The scenes in Bali were spectacular. The miraculous healing potions of Wayan were as described in the book.

When the movie was over, I felt that it was a "little too neat" in that some of the angst and agonizing were omitted as side plots and not important to the main story but in the book they were very interesting. My companion (another woman who had not read the book) remarked that she was glad it wasn't a "love story". In my opinion it was a love story about learning to love yourself and open yourself up to life. A lesson we all need to be reminded of.

Do yourself a favor, read the book, see the movie, read her next book. Enjoy!

I have read the book and while the movie is more "Hollywood" than the read, this is a must-see for anyone who has gone through, or is going through, major changes in life. Inspirational, funny, and romantic. Do not pass this up!

This movie is BRILLIANT. It was exactly what I needed when it first came out, and it still is.

Ignore the bad reviews; people judge things they don't understand. This is not a romantic comedy, so while it can be funny and romantic, that is not its purpose. It's the hero's journey from myth, but with a female hero.

Nonattachment and choosing your own thoughts, subjects covered during her trip to India, are the key to happiness and are being taught in every spiritual discipline. Nonattachment is what spiritual teachers are teaching students right now. It's ironic in the best way that the attachment she ultimately had a hardest time giving up was her new dedication to nonattachment! She was terrified of wanting something again, and making a commitment.

She is not selfish for choosing the life she wants. As women we're taught that we're bad people if we don't dance to everyone else's tune. I thought it was the bolder choice doing what they did, maintaining the first husband's personality from the book, and making him not a bad guy. It was no one's fault, it just wasn't working.

I've been in her position, praying for something, anything, a way up off the floor. And education is almost always the answer. Yes, the fact that the character seemed to have a lot of money made her trips a lot easier but that's not a reason to be completely prejudiced against her. Starting with physical indulgence in Rome, exploring the power of pleasure, then turning completely spartan in India and concentrating only on the spirit, she had to find out if it was possible to do both -- to live in the modern world, enjoy herself, and maintain the spiritual life she needed. She got both, and the right man, in Bali.

Let me preface this by mentioning I haven't read the book, though I've been meaning to, and after seeing the film first, I can only hope the book form is better. As a travel buff, I've been looking forward to watching this film, and I knew from the get-go that this would be a film about a woman's ennui and unfulfilled life. Yes, I know, first world problems--cue roll of the eyes. But I think many people can relate to the emptiness that pervades life on occasion.

That being said, even as someone sympathetic to this kind of plight, I found the character Liz to be utterly insufferable and a practically impossible woman to relate to. The film has Liz, lying in bed with her husband, looking bored and lonely. She gets out of the bed she shares with her husband to go downstairs to literally kneel down and ask for God's help for the first time, sobbing in the room of her multi-million dollar home. The problem with this entire premise is that her emptiness isn't presented in a way that is relatable to the audience. With film, the exercise is to convey what is inside by external means; the audience cannot magically divine what is going on with the characters. I understand what the INTENT was: her husband doesn't have the travel bug; her husband has ideas but doesn't stick to a single one to make it his passion; her husband doesn't share her curiosity of life, an inclination for what is MORE; she has it all but is still unsatisfied--there's no spark, no excitement. But for me these were not conveyed convincingly. Instead, we have Julia Roberts (playing Julia Roberts) crying, staring at the wall, yelling, acting like an overgrown brat with an alarming sense of entitlement. She purports to look within, but she doesn't.
