NINE, Fri­day, 8.30pm, M ( 2010)

El­iz­a­beth Gil­bert’s best- sell­ing mem­oir of self- dis­cov­ery spawned an en­tire travel in­dus­try and soon af­ter, the ul­ti­mate pop­u­lar cul­ture nod – a Hol­ly­wood makeover. Ju­lia Roberts ( pic­tured) plays the lead, a woman at the cross­roads of life as her mar­riage crum­bles. Set­ting off on a global jaunt to “find her­self”, she in­dulges in some gas­tro­nom­i­cal ther­apy in Italy, fol­lowed by some spir­i­tual awak­en­ing in In­dia, be­fore find­ing love in Bali. While some may be in­spired, oth­ers will strug­gle to con­nect with the pro­tag­o­nist’s well- funded world trip of so- called en­light­en­ment.
