Friday Night Date Night is a feature on my blog that showcases movie review (mostly movies that were adapted from books). Hopefully some of these reviews will help you decide what to watch on your date night or a night of relaxing at home.
I have dragged my feet about watching this movie. I was never really interested in reading this book just for the fact it seems a little unlikely for someone to drop everything and move abroad for a year to find themselves. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to do that, but it isn't possible.
I was pleasantly surprised by the movie though. I again wasn't to sure about the reality of this jorney being likely but it was a fun to imagine we could all do this someday. I haven't seen Julia Roberts in a movie for a while and I forgot how much I enjoy her as an actor. I think she is very versatile and really makes each part her own. Plus isn't her beauty timeless.
The scenes throughout the movie were gorgeous. Just watching parts of this movie left me feeling serene and calm. Bali was amazingly beautiful and I wouldn't mind finding the love of my life there either. Plus the food in Italy had me drooling. Yum! Maybe I'll add eating my way through Italy to my bucket list.
I love when a movie you are not sure about turns out wonderful. It makes me so happy!
