In this 2010 adaptation of the bestselling memoir, Julia Roberts is Elizabeth Gilbert, a career woman who forsakes her comfortable life—house, husband, and career—in hopes of finding true happiness. On a trip around the world, Elizabeth learns the pleasure of food in Italy, finds spiritual solace in India, and in Bali, is unexpectedly in danger of falling in love with Felipe, (Javier Bardem) a suave Brazilian businessman. This disc includes both the theatrical version and the director's cut.
"The film offers an easygoing and generous blend of wish fulfillment, vicarious luxury, wry humor and spiritual uplift, with a star ... who elicits both empathy and envy."—NYTimes
