'Love Happens' images: Jennifer Aniston, Aaron Eckhart and Martin Sheen
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.
