Directed by first-timer Brandon Camp, and written by Camp and Mike Thompson, the romantic drama Love Happens stars Aaron Eckhart as Burke, a widower whose book about coping with the loss of a loved one turns him into a self-help guru. Jennifer Aniston plays Eloise, a woman our widower meets – and falls in love with – at one of his seminars in Seattle.

The catch is that the man who teaches about coping with loss hasn't actually gotten over the death of his own wife.

'Love Happens' movie cast

Besides Jennifer Aniston and Aaron Eckhart, the Love Happens cast includes the following:

Joe Anderson. Judy Greer. John Carroll Lynch. Dan Fogler. Frances Conroy. Sasha Alexander. Martin Sheen.

Director-screenwriter Camp and co-screenwriter Thompson are probably best known as two of the writers/executive producers of the mystery/sci-fi television series John Doe, starring Dominic Purcell.

Scroll down a bit to take a look at several Love Happens images. The movie opens on Sept. 18, '09, in the U.S.
