The last time Elizabeth Olsen ended up in upstate New York at a new age commune, it didn’t work out so well. But thankfully, the hippies who occupy “Peace Love and Misunderstanding” look much less sinister than the ones who terrorized her in “Martha Marcy May Marlene.” Here, Olsen plays daughter to Catherine Keener’s soon-to-be-divorced mother, who drives her kids (Nat Wolff plays Olsen’s younger brother) to grandma Jane Fonda’s house in Woodstock, New York. There, the three generations deal with family drama as well as relationship woes and Olsen finds some relief from writer’s block in the form of Chace Crawford.
The Bruce Beresford film was actually Olsen’s feature debut and premiered at the Toronto Film Festival last September. “Peace Love and Misunderstanding” will open in limited release on June 8th. Watch the first trailer below.
