FEAST OF LOVE
2007, MGM, 102 min.
From venerable, multiple Academy Award-winning director Robert Benton (KRAMER VS. KRAMER, PLACES IN THE HEART), comes a kaleidoscopic ode to life and love in all its funny, sad, sexy, crazy, heartbreaking and life sustaining facets. In a coffee shop in a tightly-knit Oregon community, local professor Harry Stevenson (Academy Award- winner Morgan Freeman) witnesses love and attraction whipping up mischief among the town’s residents. From the unlucky in love, die-hard romantic coffee shop owner Bradley (Academy Award-nominee Greg Kinnear) who has a serial habit of looking for love in all the wrong places, including with his current wife Kathryn (Selma Blair); to the edgy real estate agent Diana (Radha Mitchell) who is caught up in an affair with a married man (Billy Burke) with whom she shares an ineffable connection; to the beautiful young newcomer Chloe (Alexa Davolos) who defies fate in romancing the troubled Oscar (Toby Hemmingway); to Harry himself, whose adoring wife (Jane Alexander) is looking to break through his wall of grief after the wrenching loss of a beloved. They all intertwine into one remarkable story in which no one can escape being bent, broken, befuddled and ultimately redeemed by love’s inescapable spell. Discussion following with director Robert Benton.
