wayback wednesdays: Feast of Love  
K. and I watched a good film called Feast of Love this weekend. It's directed by Robert Benton (Kramer Vs. Kramer) and based on a novel by Charles Baxter, who wrote my favorite short story (Gryphon). Navigating expertly through drama, comedy, romance, and tragedy, it's a nice little meditation on love, as embodied by a handful of loosely-connected couples living in Portland. Sentimental certainly, but without being shmaltzy. I'm sure it's not everyone's cup of tea, but we found it perfect viewing for a sunday afternoon.
