Transcript of Eat, Pray, Love

Italy New York India Bali Eat, Pray, Love 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, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, and 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. What role does food play in this movie?
What's the difference between just eating and cooking (especially in these scenes)?
What does the title of the film assume about food and life? Why is 'eat' first?
Has food ever affected you as strongly as it has Gilbert?
There is a lot of emphasis on the preparation of food. If this was not included, would the food seem less important? What can you infer about Liz's life in these establishing shots at each location?
How do the colors affect the mood of each place?
What do you notice about her clothing/style throughout the clips?
Mis-en-scene is a French phrase used to describe the staging of a play. It is a form of framing in films. How is this emphasized in the establishing shots? Liz spends a lot of the movie observing other peoples' relationships, and her journey ends with getting into a relationship. What do you think feminist critics would say about that?
The biggest challenge for the directors is the book's episodic and anecdotal structure. How does one dramatize what is essentially an interior journey?
Dick says, "Because photography is incapable of perfect reproduction, film ceases to be a mere replica of reality." The apologists critique has to do with this relationship between film and reality. How you think reality has been manipulated in what you've seen of this movie? One of the techniques used in this film is flashback. Knowing the plot of the film, do you think this would be an effective technique?
How does music in this movie enhance what you've seen? Are there archetypal themes in this movie? If so, name some.
Liz goes to see Ketut and Wyan in Bali, a medicine man and a healer. Do you think the movie manages to portray Liz's modern experience alongside these old traditions?
