May 31, 2012 07:25AM

Two-time Academy Award®-nominated director Bruce Beresford (Driving Miss Daisy, Mao’s Last Dancer) showcases a brilliant performance from two-time Academy Award-winner Jane Fonda in Peace, Love and Misunderstanding will be available in theaters on June 8 and On Demand June 15.

For uptight Manhattan lawyer Diane (Oscar-nominee Catherine Keener), crazy means driving her teenage son Jake (Nat Wolff) and daughter Zoe (Elizabeth Olsen) to Woodstock to visit their grandmother Grace (Fonda). The crazy part is that the kids have never met Grace. In fact, Diane hasn’t spoken to her mother in 20 years. Grace is the epitome of the term “hippie”: she stages protests and hootenannies in the town square, smokes and sells a lot of dope, and howls at the moon once a month with her goddess-worshipping girlfriends. But what’s meant to be a weekend getaway turns into a summer adventure of romance, music, family secrets and self-discovery.

At the heart of Bruce Beresford’s multigenerational comedy-drama, Peace, Love and Misunderstanding are the family ties that bind us . . . and then tangle us up in crazy knots. It is a story about second chances and the things that divide and reunite families.
