that is a rare.
she is usually taking my kiddos on date nights so hubby and i can have our own date night.
but last night we switched it up, treated ourselves to gyros (mmmm good greek gyros) and then off to the movies to see eat pray love.
i have been on the fence about the movie.
i bought the book 3 years ago and have read it 3 times.
i do love it. i know not everyone does. kind of like ice cream, some people like vanilla... some like chocolate. its all good.
the book is visually beautiful to me. i always felt like i was right there with elizabeth in each place she traveled. i am sure part of me fell in love with the book solely for that. the wanderlust of it all. her life so completely and utterly different from mine.
i knew the movie would have to change it up and skip parts, even change parts.
i was happy with julia being cast as the main character. i love julia. that smile, that great huge laugh she has, love her. then i saw they cast billy crudup, james franco and javier bardem.... oh they sealed it with that one. i DO love a man with an accent. and his is a good one... :)
so i went for the pure entertainment of the movie, nothing more. i have the book for that. the movie was good. i am glad i went. my mom had not read the book but also thought the movie was good. i had to take my mind out of the book and just enjoy the movie. i do wish it had more. i felt like the movie skimmed too much. i was not feeling the places like i felt the places in the words. i just wanted more... but there i go sticking my head back in the book...
oh and 1 more thing.
i loved ketut in the book AND the movie.
he made me smile... "in my liver" :)
