Known Trivia

  • “Samba Da Bencao” by Bebel Gilberto, featured during the Bali sequence of the film, also appeared in Closer, another film featuring Julia Roberts.
  • Shipped to theaters under the code name “Guest House”.
  • The movie created an issue in Rome due to a “creative license” made by the filmmakers. The city of Rome hosts two football teams (AS Rome and SS Lazio), fierce rivals. In Elizabeth Gilbert’s original novel (on which the film is based) it is made clear that Mr Spaghetti was a SS Lazio fan. However, due to the limited appeal and knowledge of the “SS Lazio” team outside Italy, the filmmakers decided to made him an “AS Rome” fan. This decision enraged the local SS Lazio fans (who of course became immediately objects of mockery by the AS Roma fans).
  • The book was listed as one of Oprah Winfrey’s favorites, which led to Julia Roberts interest in the book and her optioning the rights to make a film out of it.
  • Julia Roberts invited her friend Garry Marshall to direct the film, but Marshall declined because he was unwilling to travel outside America to the locations where the film takes place. However, during the meet Marshall offered Roberts a role in Valentine’s Day (on which he was working), which she accepted. This, in turn, allowed Ryan Murphy to step in as director.
  • Julia Roberts only agreed to film her Bali scenes on location if the producers agreed to allow her to have her family over there during the shoot.

Story: Liz Gilbert (Roberts) had everything a modern woman is supposed to dream of having – a husband, a house, a successful career – yet like so many others, she found herself lost, confused, and searching for what she really wanted in life. Newly divorced and at a crossroads, Gilbert steps out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life, embarking on a journey around the world that becomes a quest for self-discovery. In her travels, she discovers the true pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of true love in Bali.Written by Sony Pictures
