Drama - Despite the light advertising campaign, this is a rather serious and sometimes dark look at love by way of a number of intersecting stories. This is also one strictly for adults to the large amount of sexual content.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good The experience of watching it is not unlike that of sipping from an insulated cup at the coffee shop where much of the action takes place: relaxing, familiar, and non-confrontational. Feast of Love may not be memorable but it is pleasant.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Harry is always looking on as if he already knows how every story will turn out. We're looking on in exactly the same way.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average This Feast is more like a hearty midnight snack. It makes one ponder the kinds of probing questions that can arise in the wee hours after a night of soul-searching.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 20 moviegoers:We tried, but from several showing we were only able to collect 20 moviegoer reviews. About half the males enjoyed it quite a bit but most of the remaining half were somewhat to very disappointed. The females had fewer who truly enjoyed it but there were also fewer who actually disliked it. Overall, these reviews are somewhat disappointing and don't indicate a movie you will want to rush out to see, but a matinee wouldn't be too much of a risk.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
In a coffee shop in a tight-knit Oregon community a local professor and writer Harry Stevenson (Morgan Freeman) witnesses love whipping up mischief among the town's residents. Among young and old, among both parents and lovers, among the sweet and the savage, among humans and even animals, Harry watches in awe as love mystifies, wounds, devastates, inspires, makes unreasonable demands and profoundly shapes the lives of everyone around him – including himself.

From the die-hard romantic coffee shop owner Bradley (Greg Kinnear) who has a serial habit of looking for love in all the wrong places, including with his current wife Kathyrn (Selma Blair); to the edgy real estate agent Diana (Radha Mitchell) who is caught up in an affair with a married man (Billy Burke) with whom she shares an ineffable connection; to the beautiful young newcomer Chloe (Alexa Davalos) who defies fate in romancing the troubled Oscar (Toby Hemingway); to Harry himself, whose adoring wife (Jane Alexander) is looking to break through his wall of grief after the wrenching loss of a loved one . . .

All of these strands intertwine into one epic love story in which no one can escape being bent, befuddled, delighted and ultimately redeemed by love's inescapable spell.
