A meditation on love and its various incarnations, set within a community of friends in Oregon. and is described as an exploration of the magical, mysterious and sometimes painful incarnations of love.
A group of friends living in suburban Oregon come into contact with a sensual free spirit of Chloe, who changes their outlook on life in the most unexpected of ways. As college professor and writer Harry sits quietly in the coffee shop of his tight-knit Oregon community, the local residents all around him all become swept up in the magical mischief of love. Coffee shop owner Bradley has a bad habit of looking for love in all the wrong places, and his relationship with wife Kathryn is a prime example of that penchant. Meanwhile, frazzled real estate agent Diana becomes ensnared in a taboo affair with a married man David, lovely newcomer Chloe attempts the formidable task of romancing troubled soul Oscar, and Harry's own wife, Esther, affectionately tries to get through to her husband as he wrestles with the pain of losing a loved one.

At 46:38, when Harry is typing a letter on his computer, the address seen on the monitor displays a ZIP code in Portland, Oregon as 98765. In actuality, the first three digits for Portland, Oregon ZIP codes are 972, and the first two digits for Oregon ZIP codes are 97. See more »
What's making you smile like that?
Looking out the window, an unusual man, an innocent man, an open-hearted man. Someone who has given tremendous love, but never had it returned, not in the way he deserves.

My wife an I saw this a few days ago, a late show on a Friday which we thought might be crowded. But, only two other people were in the theater. That does not bode well for the box office for this film. We both enjoyed it. Once again Morgan Freemen does a great job as the wise old man knowing just what to say and do. He always is a joy to watch. The story is a indeed a feast of love, with multiple types of love unfolding among all the characters. The character of Diana (Radha Mitchell) is particularly well done if not very sympathetic. And Greg Kinnear plays his likable "I'm just a dupe of love" character equally well. A well done movie on relationships and their complexity, but without the non-stop action young fans want in films this will likely only get a niche audience in theaters with most folks waiting for the DVD or cable to check this one out.
