Bali’s governor Made Pastika is giving his support for part of the movie “Eat, Pray, Love” to be filmed in Bali. Julia Roberts will play the leading role.

The novel by Elizabeth Gilbert tells the story of a woman’s “spiritual journey” as she sets off for a year of travel to recover from a divorce and failed relationship. She travels to Italy to eat, India to pray and Bali to find love.

The film is set to be a blockbuster and should be a great promotion for tourism to Bali. In Bali she rents a house in Ubud and spends most of her time there.
