Jeffrey Dean Morgan
|"Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding" is a character-driven family "dramedy" about a woman, Diane, and her teenaged son and daughter, who spend a love-filled, life-changing week in Woodstock NY, staying with the mom's estranged hippy mother after Diane's husband asks her for a divorce. |
Conservative, and at first resistant to her mother, Grace, and her bohemian lifestyle, Diane, soon falls in love with local musician, Jude. Simultaneously, her free-spirited daughter, Zoe, falls for the local butcher Cole, and son, Jake, falls for a local teenaged girl, Tara. Trouble ensues when Diane learns Jude in fact slept with Diane's mother years ago, and her kids struggle with their own newfound love interests, given who they know themselves to be.
In the end, Diane, and her two children, come-of-age and learn to grow up and let go of the past and what they should expect from love and themselves. Diane also develops a new, deeper relationship with her mother Grace, and by the end, a stronger family bond.
