My husband and I received invitations to go to the premiere for “Eat Pray Love” in Jakarta last night. It was part of the Balinale Movie Festival. It was my first experience of a movie premiere.
I think many women have already read the book. I read the book with my book club 3 years ago when I still lived Okinawa. I was excited to see the movie and wondered how the words in the book would be transformed into a motion picture. The visual aspect of the movie was fabulous. As a fan of traveling, I was fascinated to see three countries in one movie. It felt like I was on a trip with Liz. I have never been to Italy or India and although I live in Indonesia with my husband and our kids, I have not been to Bali yet. (Just in case some people don’t know, Bali is one of the islands of Indonesia.) The movie definitely made me want to go to Bali (and Italy and India as well, of course), but I hear that the prices in Bali have already gone up, so I might have to wait a little until things calm down.
