Peace, Love & Misunderstanding
Sometimes a movie doesn't need to be a great work of art to be enjoyable. A 90 minute or two hour diversion can be just the ticket to nuture one's soul. Our next Rialto Recommends is 2012's PEACE LOVE & MISUNDERSTANDING starring Jane Fonda and Catherine Keener. A comedy about an uptight New York City lawyer who takes her two spirited teenagers to her hippie mother's farmhouse in the countryside for a family vacation. What was meant to be a weekend getaway quickly turns into a summer adventure of romance, music, family secrets, and self‐discovery. The Observer said "Pop songs, beautiful bucolic scenery and the joy of watching Jane Fonda fizz in a fun role that looks like a no-brainer are elements that a skilled director like Australia's polished Bruce Beresford blends with perfection." Roger Ebert said "PEACE LOVE & MISUNDERSTANDING is an undemanding formula picture that's a lot of superficial fun."
