Eat Pray Love- -
Liz Gilbert had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having – a husband, a house and 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 a best selling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert, this movie tells the tale of a woman on a world-wide journey of self-discovery. After a painful divorce, Gilbert embarks on a journey that will teach her that the simple things in life are what mean the most. She learns the pleasure of nourishing her body in Italy. In India, she discovers the power of prayer and in Bali she finds inner peace.
This movie has adult themes, sexual innuendo and near nudity. The essence of the story is spiritual. The adult themes and language are not the prevalent part of the movie, but because of them it was rated PG-13. They are so subtle that those over thirteen would get them, but smaller children would probably not understand them. The main point of the movie is a message about spirituality and enlightenment.
I do not think that most children under 12 years old would understand it at all, but there are some wonderful scenes and cultural experiences. The movie makes an excellent point about finding out what is real and what has meaning in life. It shows cultural features of life in Italy, India, and Bali. I personally would not take children under 12 to see it because of the sexual references. Although they are subtle, they are still there. However, I would take children over 12 to see it because it shows real life scenes and culture from around the world.
