Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding

Jane Fonda (Grace) stars in this spiritual comedy, Peace, Love, and Misunderstanding. I loved everything about this movie, many things I could relate to or connected with. I have a hippie spirit that I’ve never lost. Love and Peace is more than just a saying from the 60’s.

The movie is about an uptight NYC lawyer that takes her two teenagers to her hippie mother’s farmhouse upstate for a family vacation. What was meant to be a weekend getaway quickly turns into a summer adventure of romance, music, family secrets and self-discovery.


The first quote went through me like an ‘aha’ moment! The word that hit me the most was accept. This line could have been written for me. It seems I am evolving, growing, changing constantly, transforming yet not clear where I am going, and things don’t always go the way I plan no matter how much passion I have or desire.

See sometimes, sometimes in art like in life you have to accept the fact that your things aren’t, aren’t going right and you don’t quite know where you are going and you have to, have to accept that because that’s when transformation can happen.

Diane: There’s a naked man sitting next to my daughter eating cereal.

Zoe: It’s okay, it’s organic.

Diane: You want me to just let go of 40 years of irresponsibility, embarrassment, and her total refusal to grow up?

Jude: Yes, exactly.

Diane: [incredulous] Like a balloon that’ll just float away.

Jude: It’s not a balloon, Diane. It’s a sandbag you’ve got to drop for the balloon to get off the ground.
