REVIEW: EAT PRAY LOVE
OVERVIEW: Eat Pray Love – a true story based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s inspirational best-selling memoir and one of the most talked about movies of the summer -- begins its journey on Blu-ray and DVD November 23rd from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The heart-warming story of one woman’s courageous pursuit of self-discovery, Eat Pray Love proves that there really is more than one way to let yourself go and see the world.
SYNOPSIS: Liz Gilbert (Roberts) is a modern woman on a quest to marvel at and travel the world while rediscovering and reconnecting with her true inner self. At a crossroads after a divorce, Gilbert takes a year-long sabbatical from her job and steps uncharacteristically out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life. In her wondrous and exotic travels, she experiences the simple pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of love in Bali.
DVD: The film is presented in widescreen with a
1.85:1 aspect ration preserving its theatrical
format. Looks clean, images without any types of color
saturation. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has done pretty
good job with this transfer. Not only the picture looks
good in this version of the film, also the sound it is
good. A Dolby Digital English providing a nice complement to the picture. It also includes
English subtitles. Unfortunately the DVD doesn't include
French and Spanish subtitles, which I found to be
considering the big Hispanic population in the USA.
In terms of special features
the DVD includes both theatrical and extended versions of the
film. The extended version is only 6 minutes longer. It also
includes a good featurette in which Director Rayn Murphy talks
about his journey in making the film.
