Eat Pray Love

Good in parts but fails to hit its full potential…. You could view the story as one woman’s search for self-enlightenment, or as a self-centred gap year in middle age.

I’d love to know what others felt – after all, it could just be that I was having an off day, or rather that the plot goes off after a couple of days. Would I recommend watching it? Paradoxically – Yes. But more in hope that women are unlikely to be taken in. Perhaps the film does not do justice to the book
