Love Happens > Wiki


Love Happens is a 2009 romantic drama film, written and directed by Brandon Camp and starring Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston. It was released on September 18, 2009.

Burke Ryan (Aaron Eckhart), is a successful Ph.D. and author of a self-help book that gives advice about dealing with the loss of a loved one. He writes the book after his wife dies in a car accident as a way to deal with the grief. While giving a workshop in Seattle, where his wife was from, he meets Eloise (Jennifer Aniston), a woman who works as a florist. It seems, however, that Burke has not been following his own advice, and in fact has not been dealing with the loss of his wife. In the end, he confesses to an audience that he was driving the car, and not his wife, as he previously maintained. Due to this, he blames himself for her death. Eloise, along with his wife's father, (Martin Sheen), help Burke move past his wife's death.

A shockingly poor pair for a cop-buddy movie, let alone a morbidly obsessed quasi-rom-com, it makes you long for the days when …

This film worked as a study in grief. The characters were sensitive, tried real hard, and worked through some heavy stuff. The idea of a bestselling author/speaker running seminars on grief when he had a few not-so-hidden bones rattling around in his closet was very intriguing. And I really liked the way it all played out.       What didn't work for me was the Eloise (Aniston)/Burke (Eckhart) romance aspect. I didn't understand why, in the midst of his struggle/depression, he …

just terrible. I'll sit thru most anything, but we actually had to turn this off it was so bad.

It's a romantic comedy but it also deals past death. Aniston & Eckhart look great but the chemistry is not so great though. Script is good.
