Peace, Love & Misunderstanding
When her husband tells her he wants a divorce, devastated Manhattan lawyer Diane (Catherine Keener, The 40 Year Old Virgin, Being John Malkovich) heads upstate with her two teens to Woodstock to stay with her estranged flower-child mother (Jane Fonda). In this charming village, Diane and her city kids get a new perspective on life: poetry-reading daughter Zoe (breakout star Elizabeth Olsen of Martha Marcy May Marlene) becomes interested in a sensitive young butcher (Chace Crawford, Gossip Girl), nerdy son Jake (Nat Wolff, The Naked Brothers Band) finds material for his first film project, and Diane herself grows close to a handsome carpenter/singer (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Magic City). Most importantly, Diane finally gets the chance to end the ancient war with the mother she has not seen for decades. Legendary director Bruce Beresford (Tender Mercies, Driving Miss Daisy) creates a touching and poignant comedy with Peace, Love & Misunderstanding, which proves once and for all that having an old soul doesn't mean you can't be a free spirit.
