Peace, Love and Misunderstanding


Academy Award-nominated director Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) elicits a career-defining performance from the legendary Jane Fonda in Peace, Love and Misunderstanding
For uptight Manhattan lawyer Diane (Catherine Keener), crazy means driving her two spirited teenagers, Jake (Nat Wolff) and Zoe (Elizabeth Olsen), to visit their free-spirited grandmother Grace (Fonda) at her farmhouse in the country. The crazy part is that the kids have never met Grace. In fact, the career-obsessed Diane hasn’t spoken to her estranged mother in twenty years. In direct opposition to everything Diane stands for, Grace is the living embodiment of “hippie”: she stages protests and hootenannies in the town square, smokes (and sells) a lot of dope, and howls at the moon once a month with her goddess-worshipping girlfriends. As Grace takes the teenagers under her wing, and Diane struggles to come to terms with the mother she hardly knows, what’s meant to be a weekend getaway turns into a summer adventure of romance, music, family secrets, and self-discovery. Featuring stellar performances by its all-star cast (which also includes Rosanna Arquette, Kyle Maclachlan and Jeffrey Dean Morgan), Peace, Love and Misunderstanding is a heartfelt and moving comedy about second chances and the things that divide and reunite families.
