A woman embarks on a journey to discover herself after a divorce. She travels to Italy, India, and Indonesia making friends along the way. There are lessons on love, life, and finding true fulfillment.
This movie was very well-made, had a good cast, and was entertaining. I am told that it is “not as good as the book” that it is based on; but no movie ever is. It is probably one of the best movies that I have seen in the “divorced woman traveling the world to search for fulfillment and true happiness” category. Having said that, I don’t think that most men would like this movie very much. There are just too many elements that we don’t relate too: being unhappy but not knowing why, soul-searching, self-discovery, meditation, personal enlightenment. Too much emotion, too sentimental, too dramatic, but not a bad movie.
