Sony has released an international movie trailer for Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Elizabeth Gilbert‘s best-selling memoir Eat Pray Love (in March they released a domestic trailer). Julia Roberts plays “a happily married woman realizes her life needs to go in a different direction, and after a painful divorce, she takes off on a round-the-world journey.” Like Julie & Julia, this feels like it was probably a much better book than it will be a feature film. Watch the trailer now, embedded after the jump.
Thanks to Heyuguys for finding the trailer
Liz Gilbert (Julia Roberts) had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having – a husband, a house, a successful career – yet like so many others, she found herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wanted in life. Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery. In her travels, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali. Based upon the bestselling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love proves that there really is more than one way to let yourself go and see the world.
