Set in a small, idyllic Oregon community, veteran director Robert Benton's (Kramer vs. Kramer) charming ensemble drama features different lives intersecting at a coffee shop as they explore the depths of love and loss, joy and pain, and everything in between. The story opens as Bradley, who owns a coffee shop and is married to Kathryn for six years. Kathryn is a tomboy and plays softball, one day while playing a game she catches the eye of another female player from the opposing team. The end result is she leaves Bradley for this other woman which leads to a cycle of love mishaps along the way. The story continues on and as it goes along there's funny moments and truly depressing moments as couples go in and out of love for various reasons including death. When I first sat down to this film I was looking for a pretty straight forward comedy but what I found was a story filled with a lot of emotion that warms as well as breaks your heart along the way. There's many reasons why this film works so well, one is the fantastic writing and direction and the another is they excellent ensemble cast. The entire cast give great performances but the two stand-puts have to be Greg Kinnear as Bradley and Morgan Freeman,a professor who is temporarily on leave from his job, due to the death of a child. Morgan also provides the film's narrative and it alone adds a great element and over-all feel and class to the movie. Feast of Love is a movie for anyone that's been in love before just make sure you have a box of tissues on the side to wipe the tears away that will flow as well as some nice smiles along the way.Feast Of Love will be available in both widescreen (2.35:1 aspect ratio) and full screen (1.33:1 aspect ratio) versions with English Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound, English DTS, Spanish and French Dolby Surround, as well as English, French and Spanish subtitles.
