It's rare that I get really excited over a trailer, but I was delighted to see "Feast of Love" getting plugged over the weekend. It's the adaptation of the novel of the same name by Twin Cities-based writer Charles Baxter. If you haven't read it, it's well worth picking up. He's created not a love triangle, so much as a love polyhedron. Baxter examines the lives and loves of a group of people in Ann Arbor, who are all looking for that elusive special person
with whom to spend their lives. It's funny, and poignant, and deeply satisfying as a read.
The movie (strangely set now in Oregon) is due out in late September.
I caught the trailer at "Death at a Funeral" which was the funniest grown-up film I have seen in quite some time. It's simply another twist on the British farce, but somehow the twists that director Frank Oz adds take this very dark comedy to new heights.
