Peace, Love and Misunderstanding 

Directed by Bruce Beresford (ifc)

This pleasant enough straight-to-DVD comedy stars Catherine Keener as an uptight lawyer who takes her kids (one is Elizabeth Olsen) to her Mom’s for the summer. Problem? Mom is a hippie of the original sort, and is played by Jane Fonda. Cue the unwinding, maaaaaan! Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Chace Crawford play the respective laidback country love interests, Keener sings at one point (it’s lovely) and of course there’s some self-discovery and whatnot. Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy) clearly gets the most pleasure out of directing Fonda, riffing on herself, assured and chill, happy to be in something that isn’t Monster-in-Law.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
