In a coffee shop in a tight-knit Oregon community, a local professor (Freeman) witnesses love and attraction as he whips up mischief among the town's residents in a remarkable story in which no one can escape being bent, broken, befuddled, delighted and ultimately redeemed by love's inescapable spell.
Academy Award®-winner Morgan Freeman (Best Supporting Actor, Million Dollar Baby
) and Academy Award®-nominee Greg Kinnear star in this funny, uplifting tale of passion and romance. At The Fresh Pot coffeehouse, love is in the air and everyone seems to be falling under its delightful spell. From Bradley (Kinnear), the hopeless romantic who looks for love in all the wrong places; to Harry (Freeman), a local professor with the wisdom and experience to guide those close to him; to young, beautiful Chloe Alexa Davalos
, who falls head over heels for the quiet dreamer Oscar (Toby Hemingway). Directed by Academy Award®-winner Robert Benton, this celebration of life and love in all its funny, sexy, crazy facets will touch your heart and leave you laughing.
