I loved the book 'Eat Pray Love' because of the fantasy that one could take a year off from their lives and indulge yourself in basically, having nothing to do. It's the modern woman's porn. As much as I loved the book, I am not rushing to see this. It's 2 1/2 hours long. I've got better things to do, and Julia Roberts is no Elizabeth Gilbert (though Javier Bardem is one hot Felipe). I will wait to see this in the comfort of my own couch, indulging in a bowl of pasta tossed with garlic and a nice glass of red wine. Hopefully I won't have a load in the washer, or a report to finish while I'm watching.
How I long for dolce far niente.... the sweetness of doing nothing.
