Happy Hour

Just came back from seeing Eat Pray Love.

I am still not sure what I thought, there is more to it than just a love it or hate it.  It's deeper than that.

I think the fact that there were five of us in a sedan at the drive-in and it was raining might have tarnished my view of the movie.

It was definitely an experience, very sensory and spiritual I suppose you could say.  Makes you want to stop and smell the roses.

I would liken it to "Under the Tuscan Sun".  But still in a class all its own.

I understand that the book is pretty much a cult classic and I might just have to spend a week in bed and become acquainted with it.

I can say that I love Julia's wardrobe, adored the soundtrack but felt the cinematography was a little on the dark side.  Perhaps this was to create atmosphere, perhaps it was the projectionists fault.  I won't know till the DVD comes out.

I think the jury is still out on this one and will remain so for now.

Do enjoy though, don't let me put you off.  The fact that I gave it a so-so review means you will absolutely love it.  It's always the way.

I was very happy about getting dolled up and heading out on a Friday night, even if it was spent in a car, in the rain.

I haven't seen the movie but I did read the book. I have to confess it didn't really grab me. I thought she was a little self indulgent. A friend saw the movie and said her partner snored the whole way through. I think I will wait for it to come on to TV.
