NEW YORK, June 16 (UPI) -- Actor Chace Crawford has joined the cast of director Bruce Beresford's "Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding," set to film in New York's Hudson Valley.

Jane Fonda and Catherine Keener co-star in the BCDF Pictures production.

"Peace, Love, & Misunderstanding" is about Diane, an uptight New York City lawyer in desperate need of an escape after her husband asks for a divorce, a synopsis of the film said.

Along with her two children, she takes refuge at her estranged hippie mother Grace's farmhouse where she is exposed to a motley crew of free thinkers. What was meant to be a stress-free getaway quickly turns into a reminder of why Diane escaped her mother's hippie lifestyle in the first place, as the reunion forces her, her children, and Grace to find peace with each other and more importantly with themselves, the synopsis said.

Crawford will play the war-protesting butcher who catches the eye of Diane's politically active and intellectual daughter, the film's producers said in a news release Wednesday.
