Movie Info

Rebellious, quick-witted Erica Vandross (Zoey Deutch) is a 17-year-old firecracker living with her single mom Laurie (Kathryn Hahn) and mom's new boyfriend Bob (Tim Heidecker) in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley. When Bob's mentally unbalanced son Luke (Joey Morgan) arrives from rehab to live with the family, Erica finds her domestic and personal life overwhelmed. With Luke and her sidekicks Kala (Dylan Gelula) and Claudine (Maya Eshet) in tow, Erica acts out by exposing a dark secret of high-school teacher Will (Adam Scott), with perilous results; their teenage kicks become a catalyst for growing up in unexpected and unpredictable ways. Mixing dark comedy and teenage angst writer-director Max Winkler (CEREMONY) and co-writer Matt Spicer (INGRID GOES WEST) re-imagine an unproduced script by Alex McAulay, creating a star vehicle for blossoming talent Zoey Deutch (BEFORE I FALL, WHY HIM?) and elevating the teen movie to new heights.

"Flower" can't quite nail the necessary tone, aiming for dark, but missing the comedy.

March 20, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Flower is clearly not everyone's idea of a bouquet, but it's willing to take chances -- and push buttons. It's a film that reflects our times, even if it makes us uncomfortable to acknowledge it.

March 19, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

If you could pour the worst tendencies of American independent cinema over the last twenty years into a gigantic soup tureen and let it simmer overnight, this film would be the unappetizing result.

March 19, 2018 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…

As icky a comedy as you're likely to see this year, "Flower" comes from an angry place - one that is clearly more concerned about sounding provocative and clever than having anything meaningful to say.

March 18, 2018 | Full Review…

A film that's fake-transgressive: eager to shock, but never to the point where it causes any lasting discomfort or makes any disquieting insight.

Top Critic

Mistaking provocation for insight, and failing to sell the presumed heroism of its cunning central character, the movie grows less involving with each step.
