Eat Pray Love Premieres

Let’s hear it for second chances.


Let’s hear it for second chances. Ryan Murphy, the award-winning creator of Glee and Nip/Tuck, takes another stab at translating a best-selling memoir into film (his first was the poorly received Running With Scissors).
This time, he’s upping the star quotient with Julia Roberts playing the
writer Elizabeth Gilbert, who, in a bid to overcome existential angst,
gorges her way through Rome, seeks the divine in an Indian ashram, and
finds her future husband in Bali — an experience she recorded in a
2006 travelogue that has since been translated into 38 languages and
sold more than 7.5 million copies. Gilbert herself is no stranger to
the big screen: EPL may be the penance needed to atone for Coyote Ugly, which originated as an article she wrote for GQ. — JV
