Peace Love & Misunderstand in Memphis!

Join the Memphis Film Society and IFC Films with welcoming the independent feature film Peace, Love & Misunderstanding to Memphis!  The movie kicked off this past week at Malco's Studio on the Square and it will be playing throughout the weekend--and it needs your support!

Here's more about the movie:

Two-time Academy Award-nominated director Bruce Beresford (DRIVING MISS DAISY, MAO'S LAST DANCER) showcases a brilliant performance from two-time Academy Award-winner Jane Fonda in PEACE, LOVE AND MISUNDERSTANDING. 

For uptight Manhattan lawyer Diane (Oscar-nominee Catherine Keener), crazy means driving her teenage son Jake (Nat Wolff) and daughter Zoe (Elizabeth Olsen) to Woodstock to visit their grandmother Grace (Fonda). The crazy part is that the kids have never met Grace. In fact, Diane hasn't spoken to her mother in twenty years. Grace is the epitome of the term “hippie”: she stages protests and hootenannies in the town square, smokes (and sells) a lot of dope, and howls at the moon once a month with her goddess-worshipping girlfriends. But what’s meant to be a weekend getaway turns into a summer adventure of romance, music, family secrets, and self-discovery. 

PEACE, LOVE AND MISUNDERSTANDING is a heartfelt comedy and a story about second chances and the things that divide and reunite families.

We need more movies like this screening in Memphis!  So support IFC Films and Malco Studio on the Square with the future screenings of this project.  For more information, please visit the films Facebook page (and like them, too!) and go to the Studio on the Square website to get show times and to purchase advance tickets for the movie.  

See you there!
