Product Description

A meditation on love and its various incarnations, set within a community of friends in Oregon. and is described as an exploration of the magical, mysterious and sometimes painful incarnations of love.

The warm, reassuring gravitas of Morgan Freeman anchors Feast of Love, a multi-character meditation on the mysteries of that oh-so-powerful emotion. Bradley (Greg Kinnear, Little Miss Sunshine), owner of a coffee shop in Oregon, thinks his marriage is idyllic--until his wife (Selma Blair, Hellboy) leaves him for another woman. One of Bradley's baristas (Toby Hemingway, The Covenant) falls head over heels for a girl who comes looking for a job (Alexa Davalos, The Chronicles of Riddick), but his abusive father (Fred Ward, Miami Blues) spells trouble for the relationship. Finally, a professor (Freeman) and his wife (Jane Alexander, Kramer vs. Kramer) struggle to find purpose in life in the aftermath of a personal tragedy. Though some scenes are a bit precious and the dialogue leans too much on semi-philosophical pronouncements, viewers will find it hard not to identify with the universal trials of romance and the yearning for a family. Also starring Radha Mitchell (High Art, Pitch Black) as a real estate broker who can't stop seeing a married man. Warning: Feast of Love is predominantly about the ways of the heart, it features several fairly explicit sex scenes. Directed by Robert Benton (Places in the Heart, Nobody's Fool). --Bret Fetzer

Customer Reviews

Greg Kinnear and Morgan Freeman always guarantee a great flick.
T. R. Watson
While reading the book, I felt like the story lines could make a really good movie, so after finishing (and loving) the book, I went out and rented The Feast of Love.
Many viewers are likely to contend that the film is filled with gratuitous nudity.

It is always puzzling when films of the caliber of FEAST OF LOVE are short-lived in the theaters, usually scantily attended in the shadows of the big, mean, noisy blockbusters. And when film buffs begin to believe that the meaningful movies only come from foreign sources, out pops the DVD release of a jewel like this film, a story so well written (Allison Burnett), directed (Robert Benton), and acted by a gifted cast to show under scrutiny that it is the equal of the best of the 'sensitive films'.

Based on a novel by Charles Baxter (and adapted by Allison Burnett, another extraordinary writer of his own novels CHRISTOPHER: A TALE OF SEDUCTION and THE HOUSE BEAUTIFUL), the story takes place in Portland, Oregon and examines the lives and love stories of myriad characters, each of whom is connected in some way to the father confessor of the town, one elderly professor Harry Stevenson (Morgan Freeman) who not only narrates the threads of the people's lives that round out this film, but also plays a significant role as a father of an only son who died in the recent past from a heroin overdose, a man bruised and experienced in the vagaries of life, supported by his wife Esther (Jane Alexander), both of whom cope with their loss by extending their love to young people.

Bradley Thomas (Greg Kinnear) is an artist and an optimist who own Jitters, a coffee shop, and is married to Kathryn (Selma Blair) who loves sports...and leaves him for a woman who awakens her lesbian longings. A young recovering drug abuser Oscar (Toby Hemingway) works in Bradley's shop and in a magic moment falls in love with a sensitive free spirit named Chloe (Alexa Davalos) and is hired by Bradley on a whim.

This is, in short, one of the best films I've seen in a long time. It is well done and has a terrific cast. Any movie w/Morgan Freeman in it automatically has its rating boosted by a star or so. He's one of those actors who can stare into a camera for 5 minutes, say a 5 word sentence and you'll swear it was the most profound thing you've ever heard in your life.

The film is about a social circle which consists of some very diverse people. One is a college professor on sabbatical (Freeman), one is a cafe owner (Greg Kinnear) while two characters are employees of the cafe (Billy Burke & Alexa Davalos). The plot is not focused, but to me that's a good thing. It is like an overview of "everyday lives" of people within the circle.

Kinnear's character is a poster boy for the mantra that nice guys finish last. His persona's luck with women is almost as bad as mine. He's a great person who always means well, but his downfall is that he's also incredibly naive. He is intelligent, but he is prone to either over-interpreting minor events or being oblivious to major events which transpire in his life. Freeman's character is a sort of mentor for him, but at times he appears to be a lost soul.

There are some profound philosophical themes in the film which are downright Schopenhauresque. In addition, there is also an allusion (deliberate or not) to a scene from Jean Paul Satre in which a character puts a nail through his hand just so he can feel something, or to see if he can feel @ all.

Many viewers are likely to contend that the film is filled with gratuitous nudity. I would disagree. While I've never been opposed to nudity in films (and never will be!), there are some movies I've seen where the nudity was contrived. Not so in this film.

I have read that this was a difficult book to adapt for the screen since the book was written from many points of view. I think Benton did a good job, as it seems to flow effortlessly from one character to the next, tied together by Morgan Freeman's narration.

This romance is a story of love and loss, and is somewhat predictable and contrived.... but it still provides a couple of hours of viewing enjoyment. Some of it is depressing, as it depicts the ups and downs of love, but it also has moments of great tenderness. I also thought the acting was very good and look forward to seeing some of the new (to me) faces in other roles in the future.

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By R. Kyle TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on April 2, 2008
Format: DVD
The stories of the foibles of love are told through the narration of Dr. Harry Stevenson (Morgan Freeman). He and his wife, Esther (Alexander) are coping with old age and the loss of their son. He's also occasionally a sage advisor for others, but in the end realizes he still has much to learn.

Harry watches as Bradley (Kinnear) misses it when his wife Kathy (Blair) falls in love with another woman (Katic). Bradley continues a spiral of relationships until the right woman comes along quite by accident.

Harry recommends that Bradley hire 20-ish Chloe (Davalos) when his barista Oscar (Hemingway) falls for her. Then, Dr. Stevenson, who thought he was so sage about love learns the most valuable lesson from Chloe.

"Feast" is a multi-generation tale of love with lessons for people of all ages. Note: there are some explicit scenes including a lesbian relationship. The film's based on the novel by Charles Baxter and directed by Robert Benton.

The DVD I bought does not have a commentary, though I remember -- before the DVD came out -- hearing that one had been recorded and it was supposed to be on the DVD. I don't know why it wasn't included. Maybe it is included on DVDs in other regions, but as far as I know it hasn't been released... Read More
