Eat Pray Love, Film/ Conversation
Do great books make bad movies? What are the artistic challenges in moving literary works from page to screen? The State Theatre and WELL (Women Education Leadership League) invite you to explore both artistic forms through interactive pre-film discussions moderated by an expert.
Liz Gilbert 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 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 the bestselling memoir by Elizabeth Gilbert.
