Thanks to his excellent cast, and a very light touch, Benton makes these tangled relationships both real and touching.

A disarmingly moving film about love, relationships and secret lives.

Salvaged from a tendency towards self-indulgent, far too self-conscious sentimentality, by a graceful literary elegance and sensitively shaped, meditative flow. A feast for the mind and soul.

Has just enough honesty and heart to redeem it.

Feast of Love is essentially a feel-good Hollywood romcom - but it's one with twists, proper characters, and sadness underscoring the cosy love scenes.

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.

Feast of Love is just smart, sensitive and very good -- and at a time when "success" is measured by the size or scope of a project, that's enough to distinguish it from what it is not.

If it only shows how love fits into people's lives in our liberated present times, that's enough for one night.

It's nice to see these ideas played out by a fine -- and in several key roles, largely unfamiliar -- cast.

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

Director Robert Benton finds an emotional through line in a format that might have easily broken down into a series of disconnected anecdotes with little to nourish us.

The Feast movie, while not as transcendent as the book, is still pretty good.

It's a worthy effort, even as it does fall short; a good meal but hardly a feast.

There's a people-are-good feeling permeating the film, which is difficult to resist.
