The Blu-ray is extra salty with "The Real Agents," "The Modern Master of the Political Thriller: Phillip Noyce," "False Identity: Creating a New Reality," "Salt: Declassified" and the "Spy Cam" picture-in-picture commentary.
Most people figure out who they are by, say, college. Julia Roberts's character in Eat Pray Love, however, decides to embark on a narcissistic journey of self-discovery in her 40s across Italy, New York, Bali and India, where she finds a world full of people completely fascinated by her romantic shortcomings. This gently obnoxious romance is directed by Ryan Murphy, the guy who gave us the edgy show Nip/Tuck only to go soft and sing-songy with Glee. Both the DVD and Blu-ray, which will be released on November 23, contain Eddie Vedder's music video "Better Days," "Ryan Murphy's Journey With Eat Pray Love," "The Beginning of the Journey," "Praying in India" and "Finding Balance."
