Eat Pray Love

《美食、祈祷和恋爱》

Intro 简介

大部分人可能都幻想过放下手中的一切,跑到异国他乡去生活,但是很少有人真的这样做。《美食、祈祷和恋爱》讲述了一个女人的真实故事:她意识到自己当前的生活并不幸福,于是她决心离婚,离开自己的家,用一年时间到世界各地旅行,追求快乐和满足。她去了意大利、印度和印度尼西亚旅行,希望能找回她自己。让我们来看看德凡(Devan)和玛尼(Marni)是如何看待《美食、祈祷和恋爱》这部电影的。

Dialogue 对话

Marni:  So Devan, I recently went and saw what you might consider a super chick flick, Eat Pray Love. Have you seen it?

Devan:  I haven’t seen it. Did you read the book before you went and saw it?

Marni:  I did indeed, I read the book, and I really liked the book. It spoke to me in, you know, certain ways. So I had a lot of expectations, and I was a little unclear about the casting of Julia Roberts ‘cause she’s just so different from the woman who wrote the book. But I have to say, it was decent. It wasn’t amazing, but they did a good job.

Devan:  So, the reason I’ve been kind of turned off about wanting to see the film or read the book is because I get the impression it’s about an independently wealthy woman who goes through a divorce and then travels the world, and I feel like I couldn’t really connect to that idea of being rich and traveling, like, how is that supposed to…you know, how am I supposed to connect to that on an emotional level?

Marni:  Yeah, that’s perfectly valid, and I…You know, she was a writer and obviously made her living as a writer. And ironically, the book actually helped her become so wealthy and successful. But it was a quest for her to find herself, find her identity. And she wrote this memoir about her year of travel. And I think, you know, people connect to certain parts and people might be put off by certain parts of the text. And I certainly think your argument is valid. It’s like, so you got to travel for a year, how sorry am I supposed to feel for you?
