Julia Roberts and Richard Jenkins in new “Eat, Pray, Love” clip


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Those who love Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” — and there are hundreds of thousands of you out there — have been praising it for delivering adult-worthy entertainment to a summer box office that’s normally inundated with adolescent popcorn thrills. (Similar raves have attached to Lisa Cholodenko’s “The Kids Are All Right,” and rightfully so.)

And while we still have testosterone-laden flicks like “The Expendables” or the sophomoric antics of Will Ferrell and crew on tap for “The Other Guys,” grownups don’t have to take a backseat until autumn. Sony still has Julia Roberts in “Eat, Pray, Love” on the docket. Iit reaches theaters on Aug. 13, and is expected to appeal to date-night couples as well as dedicated fans of Liz Gilbert’s best-selling book.

Roberts stars as the author, an unfulfilled woman who walks away from her husband (Billy Crudup) and goes in search of herself. She finds love, companionship, and comfort in Italy, India, and Bali (who wouldn’t?), then converts her personal journey into an acclaimed memoir.

The female audience is a lock. Men, however, likely are hoping for a few story layers in which we can relate. The presence of true dudes Javier Bardem, Crudup, James Franco and Richard Jenkins raises expectations.

Speaking of Jenkins, the bearded actor appears in a “First Look” clip hosted on Yahoo that discusses meditation and teases audiences ahead of the film’s opening. Expect more news out of the “Eat, Pray” camp as Sony holds its press junket this weekend in California.

    I’ve heard this was a great book and the previews of the film look great as well. I can’t wait to see it. It looks very heartwarming.
