  • Summary: In a coffee shop in a tight-knit Oregon community, local professor Harry Stevenson witnesses love and attraction whipping up mischief among the town's residents. From the unlucky-in-love yet diehard-romantic coffee-shop owner Bradley, who has a serial habit of looking for love in all the wrong places, including with his current wife Kathryn; to the edgy real-estate agent Diana, who is caught up in an affair with a married man with whom she shares an ineffable connection; to the beautiful young newcomer Chloe, who defies fate in romancing the troubled Oscar; to Harry himself, whose adoring wife is looking to break through his wall of grief after the wrenching loss of a beloved...They all intertwine into one remarkable story in which no one can escape being bent, broken, befuddled, delighted, and ultimately redeemed by love's inescapable spell.

    Sexy, funny, sad and defiantly romantic, Feast of Love is the rare movie to cuddle up to.
  2. 75
    Feast of Love's greatest strength is that it's about people and involves universal emotions. It's not great art but it is enjoyable soap opera.
  3. This heart-warmer by Robert Benton has some of the tender wisdom and humor of his other features (e.g., Nobody's Fool).
  4. 58
    Maybe Benton's serenely dull time-waster should take a cue from one of its main settings, and become the first Hollywood film released directly to coffee shops. Otherwise, it seems destined to find an indulgent second home as an unusually classy slot-plugger over at Lifetime.
  5. 50
    Mostly due to luminous writing, Baxter's novel evoked a sense of magic, but this Feast, though never completely uninteresting, leaves you hungry for enchantment.
  6. Far too cloyingly pleased with its own humanity.
  7. Love is a many-splendored thing in Robert Benton's dull romantic fantasy Feast of Love, though none of its splendors rings true.
