Eat Pray Love

Rated PG-13 133 min. 2010

Based on the best-selling memoir of American author Elizabeth Gilbert, this would-be chronicle of self-discovery is a self-indulgent, idealized travelogue that challenges you to care about the woes of the wealthy. Liz (Julia Roberts) is a successful NYC writer who leaves her doting husband (Billy Crudup) and the struggling actor (James Franco) with whom she's had a fling to reboot her life by living for a year in Italy, India and Bali. Each stop is essentially an extended pictorial; that the film is visually luxurious is no surprise given the involvement of Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson. Roberts still lights up the screen, while Richard Jenkins walks away with the film as a Texas expat trying to repair his shattered life. Unfortunately, the film is also as shallow as an episode of director Ryan Murphy's Glee. The film's linchpin is an emotional investment in Liz's bourgeoisie fantasy camp, which presents a life without consequences and calls it real life.
