This month is Julia Roberts month on my site. I love the woman and will review four of her movies every Tuesday. I find her charming, alluring and the girl next door all rolled into one. She is a delight keeping herself out of the nasty limelight of Hollywood trash.
She made the movie! Eat Pray Love was one of the most annoying books ever. The heroine, a whiney self centered woman with no good reason for her selfish ambitions. A creepy personality with nothing lovable.
Roberts changed all that in the movie, making her one of the most charming and wonderful heroines of the new woman. In search of herself but without the whine, she created a searching character we could all as women, relate to. In search first for her own character, then for love, she takes an amazing trip to Europe then the Far East.
She shares the screen with handsome Javier Bardem, Richard Jenkins, her mentor and others who help her along the way.
A wonderful story of love. Love of all kinds, friendships, teachers and lovers. Wonderful movie!
