Despite the great ensemble, one of the blandest, most by-the-numbers movies I’ve seen in the past year is Bruce Beresford‘s Peace, Love & Misunderstanding. Premiering at TIFF, the film features indie starlet Elizabeth Olsen, who does her best in a limited role, alongside Jane Fonda, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Elizabeth Olsen, Chace Crawford, Catherine Keener, Rosanna Arquette, and Kyle MacLachlan. It’s a completely harmless film, but one can predict every single story beat from a mile away and a cringe-worth conclusion brings all the pieces together in a perfect knot. One may ask why I’m even giving it attention, but the involvement of last year’s best actress is enough to warrant the mention. Check out the trailer below via Yahoo.
