And this happens quite rarely! By the way, Micchel altered the plot of the picture so much that few people recognized in Notting Hill a remake of Roman Vacation with Audrey Hepburn in 1956. There was neither a princess nor a journalist in the picture. an unlucky bookseller and Hollywood celebrity, whom the main character ran into just on the street, the audience saw a clash and a stunning romance between people from two different worlds.

No, no global destruction has happened, but something is wrong, and what exactly is impossible to understand until you go on a journey. Someone said: don’t dream of moving – move. The heroine of Julia Roberts, in panic fear of change (as, probably, we all, well, or at least a good half) still decides to go on a long journey without a clear plan, knowing only an approximate route: an excellent decision to finally decide , with what you really want.
Elizabeth Gilbert, performed by the amazing Julia Roberts, first goes to Italy, where she learns all the subtleties of the most musical language in the world, as well as the most delicious cuisine on the planet, then to India to get to know herself better, and finally to the sea to complete your grandiose journey amid the rustle of the surf. However, she does not succeed in relaxing on the coast, because the most important adventure awaits her, which can only happen to a free (lonely – not the right word at all) woman – love.
