IFC Films has acquired North American rights to director Bruce Beresford’s dramatic comedy “Peace, Love & Misunderstand,” starring Jane Fonda and Catherine Keener.

Acquisition was announced Monday, three months after “Peace” premiered at the Toronto Intl. Film Festival.

“Peace,” written by Christina Mengert and Joseph Muszynski, also stars Kyle MacLachlan, Elizabeth Olsen, Chace Crawford, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Rosanna Arquette and Nat Wolff.

Producers are BCDF Pictures’ Brice Dal Farra, Claude Dal Farra, Lauren Munsch, and Jonathan Burkhart served as producers with Mengert and Muszynski exec producing.

Keener portrays a conservative lawyer who, after splitting with her husband, takes her two teenage children — played by Olsen and Wolff — to meet their estranged, eccentric grandmother (played by Fonda), who lives in Woodstock, NY. Once there, Keener’s character becomes involved with a carpenter/singer/songwriter played by named Morgan.

IFC is planning a spring release for “Peace.”

Deal for the film was negotiated by Arianna Bocco, senior VP of acquisitions and productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with CAA on behalf of the filmmakers.

Fonda, a two-time Oscar winner, has also completed work on French comedy “Et si on vivait tous ensemble” (“And If We All Lived Together”) her first French film since Jean-Luc Godard’s “Tout va bien” in 1972.
