Feast of Love

You know what they say, "the book was better than the movie," and one person's opinion is that it holds true in this case. Charles Baxter's Feast of Love is much better than the movie that's currently playing in local theatres. That's not to say that the movie isn't worth seeing--what starring Morgan Freeman isn't?--it's just that it disappoints in comparison to the book. I have to ask two questions. Why did they set it in Portland, Oregon instead of Michigan, as in the book? Than what was the director thinking when casting so many of the prominent female roles as near look-alikes? Still, the movie is a nice change of pace from so many of the formula comedies and dramedies that make their way to the multiplexes today.
