EAT Pray Love – a true story based on Elizabeth Gilbert’s inspirational best-selling memoir and one of the most talked about movies of the summer – begins its journey on Blu-ray and DVD on February 7, courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
The heart-warming story of one woman’s courageous pursuit of self-discovery, Eat Pray Love proves that there really is more than one way to let yourself go and see the world.

Liz Gilbert (Roberts) is a modern woman on a quest to marvel at and travel the world while rediscovering and reconnecting with her true inner self. At a crossroads after a divorce, Gilbert takes a year-long sabbatical from her job and steps uncharacteristically out of her comfort zone, risking everything to change her life.
In her wondrous and exotic travels, she experiences the simple pleasure of nourishment by eating in Italy; the power of prayer in India, and, finally and unexpectedly, the inner peace and balance of love in Bali.
Eat Pray Love will be available for £19.99 for the DVD and £24.99 for the Blu-ray.
