Feast of Love

Rated R 102 minutes 2007

This heartwarmer by Robert Benton has some of the tender wisdom and humor of his other features (e.g., Nobody's Fool), though Benton's decision to hang his dramatic payoff on the pronouncements of a fortune teller suggests a certain stickiness along with the sweetness. Adapted by Allison Burnett from a novel by Charles Baxter, the story considers various couples in Portland, Oregon, but centers on a coffeehouse owner (Greg Kinnear) whose wife (Selma Blair) leaves him for another woman and whose best friend (Morgan Freeman), a happily married professor on indefinite leave, advises him while nursing his own heartbreak. Their torments and triumphs moved me even as I regretted some of the script's emotional simplifications. With Radha Mitchell, Alexa Davalos, Toby Hemingway, and Fred Ward.
