Best and Worst of the 2011 Toronto Film Festival: 'Shame,' 'Your Sister's Sister,' 'Wuthering Heights'
Where do ''Ides of March,' 'The Raid,' 'Twixt' fit in?
Worst: "Peace, Love & Misunderstanding"
Director: Bruce Beresford
Cast: Jane Fonda, Catherine Keener, Chace Crawford, Elizabeth Olsen, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Nat Wolff
Why: An estranged daughter (Keener) drags her two teenage kids (Olsen, Wolff) to Woodstock to hang with their hippie grandmother (Fonda). In the course of a few hours the fresh air of Upstate New York is doing wonders as everyone has a new romantic interest (mostly schemed by grandma). The entire picture feels like a rejected pitch from the mid-90's (Paramount or Miramax would have made this in a second) and it's just not funny or even engaging. Fonda tries, but Keener is so miscast the entire picture is a complete and utter misfire. It's not even suitable fodder for Lifetime, WE or OWN.
