Fashionista's Movie Review: Eat, Pray, Love

I was supposed to be attending Mandarin class when my mum suddenly asked me to drive her to tHe Spring. She said she was going to watch a movie, Eat, Pray, Love. When in the car, I asked her who she was going with, and she said, No One. She was going to watch the movie alone. A-L-O-N-E. I can't let her do that! Not only is it wrong, but she's watching a movie that I have yet to watch. Oh, that simply cannot do. So I decided to skip Mandarin class and watch Julia Roberts in action.

Attraversiamo. Just that one word. That is what the whole movie is all about. How can I not love this movie? I think this movie is what every woman dreams for themselves, a journey into life and life itself. It's a search of who we really are. And I am not saying that all women are lost, but simply it would be great to find yourself and the best thing is, finding yourself in an adventure that you created for yourself. I would certainly love to be on that adventure.

So, a bit on the movie. It's a movie about a lady named Elizabeth Gilbert (and if you haven't already noticed 'duh!' Elizabeth Gilbert is also the name of the author). In actual fact, this movie recounts a part of her life, an entertaining autobiography, I must say. It started in Bali. Oh, I love Bali. I went there last year and watching the movie simply made me want to go back to Bali. A Bali medicine man predicted her life and her marriage and that later she would be back to Bali. And that is how the movie starts.

Then, coming back to her present life, she was in a good relationship with the husband but not necessarily happy. I think in a way, Liz is wondering why she isn't happy the way things turn out, even though she had taken an active role in that life of hers.

Anyway, to all of you, I really recommend that you see the movie. For me, I took it another step further by buying the book at the airport (for my trip to Kuala Terengganu, with the hopes that I'll be able to steal a few moments here and there to read the book). It's an absolutely great movie. It's off the charts. I'm sure watching it would reveal certain thing that we wished upon ourselves. And the best part is, it's not wrong to go and discover what you want.

See you at the movies!
