Consensus: Though beautifully photographed, Feast of Love offers little beyond a trite, melodramatic character drama.

A would-be-wistful dramedy that's almost insufferably full of itself.

Claudia Puig
USA Today

Multiple narratives are fluidly interwoven and the writing is often inspired, resulting in dialogue that feels honest and insightful, if occasionally mannered.

There's only so much Freeman's gorgeous voiceover can do to hold it all together.

Ebert & Roeper

It's episodic and I'd say I liked about 60 percent of it and about 40 percent of it I could leave, but it's just enough for me to say it's worth seeing.

A ruthlessly winsome movie

Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal

At one point he tells a love-struck friend, 'I think I'd proceed with caution.' I'd proceed just as cautiously to the movie.

Really an excellent movie!!! A couple stories about love which they interconect very closely. Love is blind, love is patient, love holds everything. The story… More

Yes a big sappy love-fest. But incredibly earnest about it.
